I am trying to create an offset polyline using arcpy, identical to the function in ArcObjects (constructoffset). After trying to access ArcObjects in arcpy, which I found difficult for those not well-versed in COM languages, and after much searching, I discovered that this functionality seems to only exist in ArcObjects. There may be ways to program this functionality in arcpy using trig, but that would take me hours. Essentially, the product I'd like is an offset polyline that preserves all original geometry and curvature. Have any other arcpy users needed this functionality, and is there something in the works at ESRI to make ArcObjects more easily accessible in arcpy?
