there are some days where formZ is amazing, and other days where there are a ton of little things that do not work. unfortunately, this is one THOSE days.
attached is a file of a shelf with some guides. I want to use the OFFSET SEGMENT tool with extend to boundary and insert checked so I can build a 1" thick wall from the top surface. this will not work. the offset segment is disappearing into the model. it will only work without the two tool options checked, but this isn't achieving my desired result.
SO then I'm like "okay, I'll just create a cube on that surface with insert on and I can snap to this guide where it interacts the model"
then formZ is like " lol good luck trying to snap to that intersection."
the top surface is planar and strangely if you derive the top face, then the above processes work
