Help converting lines/edges to double lines: Trying to draw stained glass windows


#1

I have sketched an elevation of my stained glass windows using single line edges to represent the 8mm lead work. I now want to convert the edges that represent the lead into 8mm double lines. There is an extension called “double line” which I though was going to work perfectly but alas it only seems to operate on very simple shapes. Does anyone have any ideas / extensions that will quickly convert this?

You can use the native Offset tool to offset each face 4mm into each pane, then afterward delete the original separation edges.

Hi yes I tried this… which could have worked if I was a single tile but I am dealing with a diamond net so it is very difficult to do this!

My olde plugin “Latticeizer” can do it if you group the geometry…

If you want a wider outer edge ‘came’ you just need to offset those perimeter edges first…
