I wante to add some tree textures around my model to create forest. I decided to add the texture to cylinders or pipes 10m high.
Normally when the cylinder is not in component and I need to copy it I duplicate it using move tool and move it up +20m. Then I rescale every circle of the cylinder down by 0.98. Then I move the cylinder down -20m. This way I copy the cylinders to be a bit smaller than the previous one. But now I decided to add the cylinder to component.
When it is in component, I cannot rescale it as in the previous example. If I would rescale so the height of the cylinder would be samaller (0.98*10). Hence the trees would be smaller. This is not what I want.
So I need to set the dimensions on horizontal plane to scale it, excluding z axis. Any idea how to do it?
