I am sure this is an easy question, but something I have never been able to work out.
Say I want to scale an object (in all 3 planes) to a specific size (in 1 plane) is there an easy way to do it?
Imagine I have a washer… And I want to scale it so that it was 10mm across (but I didn’t care about the height, instead I just wanted it to remain in the correct proportion)… Currently I would select it… Grab one of the “corners” and drag it, but then I have to get to 10mm by trial and error.
I could of course draw some 10mm wide lines and scale to the edges of the lines… But I am sure there must be a better way.
Is there any way to type something in the text box to do this?
I know I can type something like “10mm,10mm,1mm” and this seems to work… But its no longer in proportion… I want to set ONE value only and have the whole thing keep its proportions.
I was thinking that I could do “10mm,1,1”, where 10mm, was the absolute size, and the 2nd and 3rd one was a ratio… But this just takes the whole thing in mms.
