9-  Adjust the spacing so the offset is almost on top of the original lines. Apply.


 

10- With the new offset still selected, click the offset tool again. Once again you will see a offset on top of the 2nd offset. Adjust the offset once more to almost touch the lines.

14- Send to your silhouette machine.


 

15- As you can see here foiled, the top design which had the thicker lines is clearly more defined than the original design.
