Scribe with open and/or intersecting contours?


Here you go.

  1. Step 1:

    Make the shape you want to scribe.

  2. Step 2:

    Offset it with a proper distance.

  3. Step 3:

    Then you need to eliminate those areas that intersects so it's just one open contour by using the trim tool, then we close the ends to make it a closed contour.

  4. Step 4:

    Before we can trim the entities we have to delete the offset relations.

  5. Step 5:

    Here's the finished sketch with some modification I made. Just a nice closed contour.

  6. Step 6:

    Then scribe away.
