  1. Click CurveAtOffsetByInt on the Geometric Construction Palette.

  2. Select a surface, such as a plate system or a reference plane. Typically this is a surface intersecting the surface selected for the main command.

  3. Select a surface intersected by the first surface. By default, this is the surface selected for the main command.

  4. Type an offset value.

    A green preview curve is visible at the offset from the surface intersection. If one of the surfaces, such as a reference plane, is infinite, then the preview curve is infinite.

  5. Click Continue.

    Temporary geometry displays in the graphic view and as CurveAtOffsetByInt in the Geometric Construction Explorer.

  6. If needed, create additional geometric constructions.

  7. Click Close to return to the main command ribbon.

The geometric constructions are not created and saved to the model until you click Finish on the main command ribbon to create the model object.
