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)
  •  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
