Location: Transform>Scale Axes Options

This feature is similar to Scale Unidirectional, except that the scaling is done three times with the same base position and in three different, mutually perpendicular, scaling directions. When using this function, it will be important to keep the following in mind:

  • The scale will either be world coordinate axes or view coordinate axes based, depending on what you set.

Using the Function:

Select Scale Axes>Move, Copy, or Join (see icons below) from the Transform>Scale submenu.

          image\ScaleAxesJoinL.gif Scale Axes>Join

  1. Select the entities you intend to scale.

  2. If either Copy or Join is selected, you must enter the number of copies to be created.

  3. Indicate a base position, or scaling origin. This point remains stationary in the transformation.

  4. Enter a scale factor for each axis. The transformation is completed.
