Model not rescaling

scale
tapemeasure

#1

I created a component from a 3d .dwg file. After smoothing geometry and adding materials it’s great. Trouble is I can’t rescale it to the correct size. My understanding is that I can use the tape measure tool to take a particular dimension of the component and then enter the desired dimension. At this point, I’m used to a dialog box appearing asking if I want to resize the model. However, in this case, the dialog box doesn’t appear and nothing happens.
Thoughts?


#2

Is the tape measure producing a guideline?

Shep


#3

Are you clicking on endpoints in the model?


#4

Although small, there’s a chance you disabled NumLk.


#5

Yes, I get a guidline.


#6

I click on faces while aligned to the red axis.


#7

Yeah, I don’t have a Number lock key…


#8

Try going from endpoint to endpoint. In other words along an edge.

#9

So you aren’t clicking on endpoints. Do that. Or hold Option when you click on the second point.

Well for whatever reason, this morning it works. I honestly don’t think I did anything different. It was probably posting the question then waiting 12 hrs that did it : ) Thanks everyone for their replies.
