Changing The Dimensions Of An Existing Object


If I have a cube that is 10h, 10w, 10l and I want to change the width to 11 inches, how can I do this?

I can use the gumball but I dont know how to get it to exactly a specified length

Hello - with gumball, click on a scale handle and type in +.5mm (or any unit) in that axis (each way) ; to add in all axes, shift click on a scale handle.
BoxEdit is also handy.


Thanks Pascal!

Hi Pascal,

Per the documentation you need to include the units (e.g. +.5mm) for this to work. Without the units it scales to half distance. Confirmed this by experiment.


Yes, correct, thanks - you need the units - I’ll correct above.
