Dear Ferrotto

For offset a surface oder a shell im MagicsRP select the surface and use
the command tools->extrude and not the tools->offset parts. With extrude
you can use the normal of the surface or a vector for the direction of the
offse/extrude. And you can choose if you want to move the points or insert
new triangles.
