public sealed class Offset

The Offset type exposes the following members.

Public methodOffset
Instantiates an offset with zero distance.
Public propertyDx
The current object's Dx offset. This value is defined using the object's coordinate system.
Public propertyDy
The current object's Dy offset. This value is defined using the current work plane.
Public propertyDz
The current object's Dz offset. This value is defined using the current work plane.
