I have asked something like this before and have been given some great info… But every time I want to use it I still can’t make it work.
I am talking “cardinal points” on cylinders to change the size.
I just created this
and want to make the inside a bit bigger whilst maintaining the wall thickness…
If I move the mouse around the ouside I find the cardinal point
And now I can easily make it bigger/smaller by moving this line
But I can’t for the life of me find the same point on the INSIDE… I run my Move tool around the inside and I just never see the Cardinal line appear…
I struggle with this all the time and just wonder if I should learn another way to achieve the same.
How would I take this object and move the outwall 5mm and the inner wall 5mm, so that the openeing increased from 40 to 50mm and the wall stayed teh same (2mm)
I could us scale… but that would alter the wall thickness and for a model this simple I could just draw it again quicker than I could write this… But I need to learn how to handle this as I run in to this all the time.
I am greatful for any help you can offer.
I have attached the file should anyone want to take a look.
