What is OFFSETGAPTYPE variable?
This system variable can have a drastic effect on the appearance of offsets. It’s stored in the registry so it affects all drawings. The initial value is 0. Check the simple picture below as a reference.
- 0 Extends the segments to fill the gap (the old way)
- 1 Fills the gaps with a filleted arc segment (the radius of the arc segment is equal to the offset distance)
- 2 Fills the gaps with a chamfered line segment
