Hello Inventor Community!
I am an intermediate Inventor and 3ds max user.
I downloaded a .ipt file from the internet and am modifying the part for my own purposes. There are no features on this model other than a file named Base1. What I want to do is scale the object. So my question is : How would I scale an object ONLY on the X-Axis, Just like in 3DS Max, how you can choose to scale an object on a single axis, I need to do the same, but in Inventor as I cant export my 3ds Max file to Inventor.
I tried using the Derive Component option, but that scales the object overall, as I ONLY need it on the X AXIS. Any help would be GREATLY apreciated!
Thank you for reading!
There is a non-uniform scaling tool in the SDK.
Or if you have Inventor Professional you can take it over to Tooling to do the scaling.
I seem to recall that there is some sort of ReadMe description of each one of those tools.
Yes, I see. I read this readme before I installed, and followed the steps (It was just "run the Install.bat file" which I did. Now do I go back into inventor and derive a part again or do i use the Visual Studio files given to me?
... or do i use the Visual Studio files given to me?
I don't know what "Visual Studio" is.
I would use Inventor to non-uniform scale the ipt files with the Derived Components Scale and Position tool.
