I’m trying to model some Doric order columns. I have SU Make, not Pro. I’ve seen videos where the top of the column is selected and the scale tool used to make the taper, but I must have missed something important. No matter what I’ve tried, the column will not taper. The column is a group item. Is that the problem?
Also, one of the videos mentioned using Fredo Scale tool. I could not find such a tool searching online. Will it work with SU Make? If so, where can I find it?
You need to open the group for editing. Either double click on it, or R-click and choose Edit Group. Then select the top and scale it to make the taper.
If you intend to use more than one column, you should make it a component, not a group. Indeed, even if you only intend to have one in the model, using components has an advantage over using groups - if you delete a component, it’s definition will still exist in the model and you can drag out another instance from the Component Browser. If you delete a Group, it’s gone.
