Informatie (ENG):

With FredoScale you can orientate the selection box around a set of objects and interactively apply a number of geometric transformations, such as Scaling, Tapering, Stretching, Plane Shear, Twisting, Bending and Rotation. By extension, some transformation can be done without a selection box.

  • You can orientate the selection box:
    • Arrow Up will align on model axes
    • Arrow Left and Arrow Right will cycle through axes of components at highest level
    • Arrow Down will restore the initial alignment when selecting
  • Gently click and drag on the handles to perform the deformation. Toggle the CTRL key to perform the deformation from the center.

  • For Stretch, F4 toggles a Divider on and off
  • It is a good idea to check the contextual menu to see available options
