as i did show in the Video
you need AFTER the vectorise to get the 2 Views seperated
thne delete the original RIGHT MOUSE Click
I saw the second video twice.
I removed the original image. So the vectorized image left only.
The SVG file was very fine. But when I opened it in FC the result was wrong. Some parts were filled.
if it showes Filling and Contour its the Vector
if it does not its the image to be deleted
then Click again Right on the Vector
FILLING and Contour
X at Filling
and First low on contour
done export as standard svg
Sorry, I did not understand you :(

You can get a good offset using "make a thick solid" (see pic) in Part design. If you then select the offset line and do some magic (probably in Part) you could get an offset sketch.

I don't have all the details but I took the original and downgraded it a couple times in Draft and then converted to skech. I did in fact get an offset of the original and now have a sketch I can use in Part design. No parametrics of coarse but I could use it to make a lid.

kolona if you tell us what kind of baking mold you woudt like to see we cen do some more magic for you

so i guess you are on the right way to do it as you now can get outlines and offsets
if thickness does not work you can use sketch from face and do a offset there
make a pad out of it and boolen it out

My goal is to make some shapes for biscuits...
I get pictures from the internet and make my shapes :)
It looks like this (see attachment).
I am studying Inkscape now to prepare SVG files.

By the way... Thickness tool does not work with a solid in my file...

this woudt be better to do it in Blender3D
its a simple use of the svg path to get edges up
