How can i change the scale of this object but only in that direction

Your file is large and my connection is slow.

Does Scale1D or ScaleNU help?

No, it streches it all the way, i just want to make it wider

Can you upload a .3dm file with just the piece of geometry you want to change? You can use Export to create a file with selected objects.

Scale1D only changes an object in one direction. ScaleNU allows different scaling or no scaling in the x, y and z directions.

Hello - Explode the objects. Select the inner faces and Scale2D from 0,0,0 MatchSrf for Position, match by closest points, the complex surfaces to the scaled inner faces. Join.


Thanks for the answer but i can’t realy work out what u told me, can u send the file you worked on?
Thanks in advance

Hi Pascal, Would explode ,then offest srf to 1.2 cms work?

That’s the approach I would use. Explode and delete everything except the outside surfaces, then OffsetSrf with Solid=Yes.

Yep, that works as well - probably quicker.
