This last, short section demonstrates using exact scale

values when scaling in 3D. You can replace the modified

materials and layers, or leave them as they are.

1.Align the axes once again to the box (right

out-building) form. Otherwise, the box will be scaled

relative to the current red and green axes.

2.Select the two faces shown and activate Scale.

3.Select the corner midpoint handle shown.

Because this handle allows non-uniform scaling by

default (though you can change this by pressing

Shift), you can change the scale factor in two

dimensions - red and green.

4.Move the cursor to see how this handle can be

moved, and note the two comma-separated values in

the VCB. Enter 0.5,3 to reduce the red dimension to

one-half, and multiple the green dimension by three.

5.Now click the corner handle shown. By default this

handle scales uniformly. But press Shift, and you can

change the scale in all three directions.

6.You cannot enter values while Shift is pressed, but

you can click anywhere to scale, then enter values to

modify the scaling. Don’t forget to separate the

values by a comma, and to list them in order of red,

green, blue.

Note that adjacent faces are automatically folded

when required by the scaled faces.
