Typical Uses

  • Creating parallel lines to the left, right, or both sides of a curve feature

How does it work?

The OffsetCurveGenerator takes in curve features and creates new curves on either side of the original. These new lines are placed at a specified Offset distance from the original, on the left and right-hand sides. There is a choice of how corners are created - round, mitered, or beveled.

The new offset curves are output as Right and Left, according to the orientation of the original feature.

Two options for Buffer Mode are available. Standard (Fast) can generalize the geometry, producing faster and simpler results. Precise honors the input.
