One can get inward thickening by offsetting a surface with a negative value.
The problem is that if there is a thin part, instead of just filling in the offset, Freecad create protruding stuff outside the original surface (look at the tail of my tadpole). I do understand that this behavior is the exact translation of « thicken my stuff » but this is not what I want, and I guess what would ask most of the users in a similar situation. Is there a way to get rid of this unwanted part of the volume ?
