I am still hung up on this. I donot see any curves less than 1 mm curvature. Does anyone have any suggestions or reasoning for this error.
This looks to be a surface that was generated from a point cloud or mesh. Because of the algorithm that generates these types of surfaces it can create 3 or 5 sided surfaces. These types of surface patches do not easily offset because they contain degenerate points (i.e. normal of surface is not known) and you will have difficulty unless you manually replace them with 4-sided or Fill surfaces. Also in your model (as you and others here have discovered) you have some high rates of curvature in a few of your patches that cannot offset.
You can get a clue of what I'm talking about if you turn on your curvature display - i.e. menu>View>Display>Curvature.
I don't know if it's possible for you but you can try to work with the other half of mesh. I didn't had any problems to get 1mm offset from the other half.
This looks to be a model of a ladies chest? Is this serious, or something you thought would be funny?
Yes, removing the complicated surface patches helped in the offseting of original surface. I did this by trimming using a plane. Could also probably work by deleting and fixing up just these patches where there is irregularity is present.
Thanks for all the help.
