  1. Often you will have created a surface or curve and upon further design, you will need to change the surface or curve’s size or shape.
  2. To scale an object in one direction only, navigate to Transform>Scale>Scale 1-D (or type “scale1d” into the command line).
  3. Select the object(s) you wish to scale.
  4. Select an origin point (this is the point that you want to scale from).
  5. You can now type a scale factor or you can specify a reference length from the origin (this is done by clicking on a point relative to the object you wish to scale).
  6. Now you can type in the new length/distance of the object and hit enter/return.
  7. Your object will now be scaled in only one direction to the new length/distance specified.
    • For example, if you wanted to make an object longer, you would select an origin point to start from and then select a first reference point at the end of the object. You would then type the new length for the object and hit enter/return.
  8. If you wanted to scale an object in two dimensions, you could instead navigate to Transform>Scale>Scale 2-D (or type scale2d into the command line). Continue to follow steps 3-7 above to scale the object.
  9. Additionally, if you wanted to perform a uniform scale of the object in all directions, you can navigate to Transform>Scale>Scale 3-D (or type “scale” into the command line). Continue to follow steps 3-7 above to scale the object.
