    Default Uniform Scale LOCK

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi, all I want to do is change scale on a particular axis instead of uniform. Can anyone help, please? This is doing my head in...

    there is no direct way to do this. The work around is to make your items into a block, scale that using the properties palette then explode it.

    In the properties box, you can set the scale for each of the axes.

    Edit: for blocks.

    Try this link. Find and read the part about scaling with lisp utility.
