Avoid Self Intersection with BRepAPI_MakeOffsetShape

Zettler's picture

Dear all,

how can I avoid the self intersection of my offset surface after I do an offset from a shape?
It happens all the time when I try to offset shapes with an offset value that is a little bit bigger.(20mm or so)

The input is a shape that results from a step file. Another input is a C2-Continuous surface and even when I try to offset this surface I will have self intersections in the resulting surface and no longer something like C2 or even C1 :(

I already searched the forum but it seems that the only guy who also had this problem (Akbari) gave up on it...

Can anybody help me out, or at least tell me if there is a bug or not.

Take care.
