Description

Creates a new resized mesh object with independent sizing for each axis.


Usage

  1. Select the mesh object to be resized.
  2. Click the OpenSCAD → Scale Resize Feature... menu.
  3. Select the desired axis in the dialog, or enter your own custom axis to use and click OK.
  • A new mesh object is created and resized, the original object is rendered hidden.

Limitations

  • The new mesh object is not parametric to the original mesh object, which means any changes to the original object do not get reflected in the new mirrored object.

Notes

  • The function does not modify the existing mesh, but returns a new mesh.
  • The function can be accessed via python:
import OpenSCADUtils
import Mesh
#this assumes an existing object in the document named "Mesh" that you wish to mirror
original_mesh = App.ActiveDocument.Mesh
resized_mesh = OpenSCADUtils.resizemesh(original_mesh.Mesh, FreeCAD.Base.Vector(100,50,40))
#New mesh would be 100 mm on the x axis, 50 mm on the y axis, and 40 mm on the z axis.
Mesh.show(resized_mesh)
