3.90. scale2D command

Description: This command scales only the two specified dimensions (X, Y, Z) of an object or objects by the same factor specified by the user.

Inline mode usage:

  • scale2D -h: Displays the help file that summarizes the parameters for this command.
  • scale2D –all –p <scaleFactor>: Scales all objects with a scale factor.
  • scale2D <name> –p <scaleFactor>: Scales one selected object with a scale factor.
  • scale2D –nolocal -all –p <scaleFactor>: Scales all objects with a scale factor, ignoring the reference plane to apply it.
  • scale2D –nolocal <name> –p <scaleFactor>: Scales one selected object with a scale factor, ignoring the reference plane to apply it.

Interactive mode usage:

  • Invocationscale2D or scale2D -all
  • Parameters:
    • Objects to scale (when not using the all modifier). The objects can be selected by left-clicking on them in the geometry view (hold Ctrl for multiple selection) or by left-clicking on them in the tree view.
    • First Coordinate. One of the dimensions to be scaled. Only one of the values "x", "y" or "z" are allowed.
    • Second Coordinate. The other dimension to be scaled. Only one of the values "x", "y" or "z" (different of the first coordinate) are allowed.
    • Scale factor. Factors smaller than 1 decrease the size of the selected objects while factors greater than 1 magnify the objects.
    • By default, the selected objects will be scaled using the reference plane as reference. Optionally, the user can specify the -noLocal argument to ignore the reference plane when scaling.

Example:

We’re going to convert an ellipsoid into a sphere by using the scale2D command. 

command> ellipsoid

Select center [x y z]: 0 0 0

X radius [double]: 1

Y radius [double]: 0.5

Z radius [double]: 0.5

command> scale2D

Select objects on screen (Press enter when done): 

Coordinate 1 {x|y|z}: y

Coordinate 2 {x|y|z}: z

Scale factor [double]: 2

command>

Result:

scale2d

Scaled ellipsoid converted into a sphere by scaling it in two dimensions
