SHorten a rail, imported as DWG

Rail.skp (382.2 KB)

Hello,
I like to shorten this imported rail from 6000mm to 1936mm.
The file is original a DWG file.
The re-scale option does not work.

Can someone please support me?

The thing opens as a nested component. You’d need to open both to do anything to it. There’s a bunch of bad geometry at the ends, though and I think simply cutting it off makes more sense. This is at one end.

I did that by placing a couple of rectangles 1936mm apart that cross through the rail, intersecting faces and then deleting the waste.
