Offset face?

onshaperonshaper Member, Mentor Posts: 90 ✭✭✭
Hey all,

How can I do an offset face in Onshape?

The idea is I built this part for 3d print, now I'd like to go to all slip fit surfaces and offset them by about 0.3mm to account for 3d printer squeeeeeze out.

    This is an example of the Boolean Subtract with offset to get .05 clearance. Hope this helps.
