Copy contour

Postby Shaun Just » Thu, Oct 29 2015, 6:38PM

Hi there,

Is there an easier way to copy a complete closed contour and enlarge or decrease the size for example, I make a 55mm frame and want to do a 47mm profiled edge on the inside, at the moment I create my 55mm edge and do the pocket cut, then I create edges and copy each inside edge by 8mm and then trim them together then do the profile cut, and thought there must be a easier way of doing this in one step? Any ideas?

please see attached photos

Thanks,
Shaun

Hi tim,

Yeah very familiar with it, what I'm saying is it only offsets one line at a time not the whole box as such

You can offset the cutter by 8mm to the left or right of the pocket depending on the cut direction.
