Summary0003703: Part->3D-Offset should warn if resulting object is not a solid
DescriptionAs described in
https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=32110&p=267820#p267820
I tried to do a 3D-offset on a compound solid. (a M4 hex nut)

From a user perspective, the result from the 3D-offset operation should also be a valid solid. (An be usable in a subsequent boolean operation.)

However, in this case, the result is a shell, not a solid, and the user has no obvious way of noticing the difference. There is no change of the icon, no warning message, or no helping message in the python log window how to make the resulting object a solid again.

The work-around here was to use Part->"Convert to solid", but it was frustrating user experience to find that out.
Steps To ReproduceHave a look at the attached file with a metric M4 nut from the Fastener-Toolbox
