trying to put an outline on this image

Recommended Posts

Okay,  I'm trying to just put an outline around this image I drew, but I'm struggling with the typical inline/outline/expand features.   I just want to do say a .05 perimeter outline with a .05 offset.  When I try to do it all I can manage to do it outline every detail of the image, not just the perimeter.    Can someone walk me through this one?  

 

Thanks,
Ford.

Copy and paste the design, so that you have two side by side. Leave one alone and do this to the other one.

 

Arrange >>> Split Objects

 

Keep the black silhouette and delete the gray parts

 

Manipulate >>> Expand/Outline/Inline   check outline, uncheck everything else  .05 offset .05 thickness

 

Arrange >>> Weld >>> Total Weld

 

Align >>> Center Vertically / Center Horizontally  <<< with both copies selected
