Scale Models

To scale models, follow these steps in Meshmixer:

STEP 1:

If you have multiple models loaded, select the model you want to scale in the Object Browser. [Otherwise, skip this step.]

STEP 2:

On the left sidebar, click Edit > Transform (or use the keyboard shortcut: T).

STEP 3:

The white cube at the center of the X, Y, Z axis enables you to  scale uniformly. To change the model’s size:

      • Click & drag upward to increase the model’s size
      • Click & drag downward to decrease its size

Alternatively, you can enter numerical size values in the Size X, Y, & Z fields in the Transform window.

NOTE

To preserve the aspect ratio of your model (and prevent distortion), click Uniform Scaling in the Transform window.

Click Accept in the Transform dialog box to save the change.

STEP 4:

Click Accept in the Transform dialog box to save the change.
