Scale Distances/Coordinates

    Hi Kevin.

    The input box in move XYZ also accepts mathmatical inputs  e.g 1.26*1.25 ( distance X 1.25 or 125% )

    will that help...

    For more info with DSM open, key F1 , go to search within Index, type Mathmatical Expressions.

    Are you saying that you want them 1.25 further away from the origin in one axis or in all three?

    @Tim: That is nice to know! I'll read into that to see if I can add a variable so I can scale it with that variable.
    @Jason: All three but I guess I could do one axis at a time if there is no other way.

    Hi.

    XYZ values can be altered by adding *1.25 to each value by tabbing without entering. Some commands have more than a single value box - a common theme within DSM is to Tab through the boxes or select the appropriate box, alter a value and either Tab through to another or press 'enter' to accept all displayed values and complete the command.

    Looks like the mathematical expressions doesn't support variables. I was hoping to have the XYZ coordinates multiplied by a variable which would be a scaling factoring that I can edit depending on how I want the design.

    Example: Sphere at X=5*a, Y=1*a, Z=3*a where 'a' can be any scale factor. So a=1 would keep XYZ at 5,1,3 but a=2 would scale the dimensions to XYZ = 10, 2, 6.

    That's more functionality found in parametric modelers. DSM is 'dynamic modeler', it's technology is a subset of Ansys Spaceclaim , a more expansive all encompassing design software now with parameters / variables and block recording, allowing edits and reordering of creation history.

    When and if DSM inherits this technology is unknown to me...Ansys Spaceclaim is available to be purchased or yearly licensed.
