Gumball Scale2D - How?


How do I scale things in 2D using the Gumball, like the T-Splines manipulator does?
I think there should be a obvious way, but I just can’t find it…

Or may be something tricky as extruding with constrains using the gumball…

If the selection is planar you’ll scale in 2D when holding shift while dragging a scale handle on the Gumball. If the selection is not planar, the scale with Shift held will be in 3D. There isn’t a way to scale2D a non planar selection with the Gumball currently although it is a filed feature request

Yes, when working on planar objects it works fine, it’s about 3D objects that it can’t be done, like you said. The Rhino gumball is superior to the T-Splines manipulator because its everything in one tool (move scale, rotate), you don’t have to be switching all the time.

Thank you thank you thank you!
