Multiple Offset for AutoCADPinnacle team also reviewed AutoCAD Multiple Offset which is a plug-in for Autodesk® AutoCAD®. It adds more functionalities to the Offset command. While one is trying to offset an object multiple times with different distances, one has to re-invoke the offset command for each distance. Multiple Offset fills this gap by allowing the user to enter multiple distances before selecting 2D object(s). Originally developed using LISP, MOffset has been completely rewritten in .NET. It has been enhanced over the years and the key feature of this version is the integration with AutoCAD.
