Description

Offsets a polygon or polyline. Uses Parasolid to do it. Equivalent of Voronoy based OffsetPoly.
FUNCTION OffsetPolyN(
h  :HANDLE;
offsetDistance  :REAL;
smoothCorners  :BOOLEAN) : HANDLE;
def vs.OffsetPolyN(h, offsetDistance, smoothCorners):
    return HANDLE

Parameters

h HANDLE
offsetDistance REAL
smoothCorners BOOLEAN

Remarks

(Orso, 2011): OffsetPolyN fails:
  • on holes, they are ignored
  • used from inside plug-in objects: deselects the object instance on drawing at each run, compelling the user to re-select (tested from VW 2011 through 2014).
