Changing the dimensions/resizing/scaling


#1

Hello Gentlemen, newbie here, trying to understand how to operate in Rhino, had some small designs in FreeCad, want to move on Rhino.

I’m having difficulty in resizing/changing the dimensions. I’m searching the how to for 2 hours, couldnt find anything.

I made the design, saved and closed Rhino, printed a 3D model and noticed that a part has to be changed. I need to rescale it by adding 2mm for each side and make it thicker. I cant go back in history to make the changes, what sould I do ? I also want to resize the the hole, but i cant apply the DeleteHole command, what is the reason of it ?

I just made a simple drawing to show what i mean and attached the 3dm file

Thanks for your help in advance.

You could use MoveFace and move the side faces out 2mm, or use SolidPtOn to turn on the control points for the solid, then window around the 4 points and move them out 2mm.

There are no parameters to change like a parametric solid modeler.
Rhino is a non-paramertic surface modeler.

Thank you for the reply John, I will try them. Seems that Rhino is not suitable for me, have to find something else.
