Component Will Not Scale Down

Hello there,
I’m sure there is a really simple fix to this issue but I have never run into it before and not sure what little thing I’m missing.
I have downloaded a Nanawall component from the 3D Warehouse that I am trying to scale down. However every time that I scale it where I want it, it snaps back to its original size. Are there some components that just don’t scale or is there a little step I’m missing?

Thanks in advance for any insight!

If you can you post a link to the component, then we can take a look!

There is a chance that it is a dynamic component, and of a specific size. In that case, if you try to use Scale to resize, it will jump back to it’s intended size.

That’d probably be helpful!

That is exactly it! If you right click on the component, then choose Component Options from the Dynamic Component menu, you will get a set of preset sizes that you can choose from.

For future reference, files from the Warehouse with the little icon in the upper right corner are Dynamic Components:

Noted! :slight_smile:
Thank you for helping me understand this!

I downloaded the model, selected one of the panes, and exploded it, removing its dynamic attributes. Keeping it selected, then made the collection of objects a new component. Now I can re-scale the one pane. If you do it for all of them, then you can re-scale the entire model.
