###
extrudeEdgesByOffset.rb
###
Usage:
Select two or more Edges, Curves etc to be Offset.
Anything else in the Selection, such as Faces, will be ignored.
The selected edges must be 'coplanar' and should be 'connected' and not
'branching' - otherwise the tool might stop, or unexpected offset results
can occur.

Run the Tool from Plugins > 'Extrude Edges by Offset'.
or click on 'Extrude Edges by Offset' in the 'Extrusion Tools' Toolbar.
[Activate this Toolbar from View > Toolbars if it's not loaded]

If there are < 2 edges or they are not coplanar then a dialog warns and
the tool stops.
A dialog opens, enter the required offset distance in current units or
other units with a units suffix - e.g. if you are working in 'mm'
entering 100 offsets 100mm but entering 4" would offset 4" [101.6mm].
OK to continue, Cancel to stop tool.
Entering a -ve value offsets 'inwards' rather than the default 'outwards'
Note that you cannot enter 0 as the value - you are warned and the dialog
reopens so you can retry, entering 0 again [or Cancel] stops the tool.
The offset entered is remembered across tool uses in the same session.
The selected edges are replicated inside a group and offset by the
desired distance. A loop of edges creates an offset 'doughtnut' form;
a set of edges with open edges is finished with two 'square' ends.
Faces are added to these edges and subdivision coplanar edges are added
across each pair of vertices. You are prompted Yes|No to reverse the
faces [the default is 'up'], then to erase the coplanar edges and finally
to explode the group so that the new geometry merges back into the
active_entities' geometry.

You do it! Bravo!
:fro:
I am anxious to see if repetition is inside :enlight:

Ah there is not! :mrgreen:
Next selection should be the new external result!

And a "Do you want Enter a new Distance if not Satisfy" will be also cool :thumb:
Because result is not always predictable :roll:

This tool + Extrude Edges along a vector = a mega super tool :fro:

And if after the first selection you can just move the mouse against enter a value
and repeat at the end of the process that will be a task! :enlight:
Left click + Move = Offset, Right click = extrusion ;)

And a "Do you want Enter a new Distance if not Satisfy" will be also cool :thumb:
Because result is not always predictable :roll:

And also because the CTRL + Z lost the first selection! ;)

if possible
Mouse + click down pressed without release = Offset ,
mouse x y without click down pressed without release = extrude along vector :)
