Manually key in (scale) values in transform tool?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've never used 3D Coat proper, but it seems to have a transform tool option to manually key in scale values. Is that not part of 3DC printing? Am I missing something? Would seem to be a pretty important option given that we're trying to use real world measurements for 3D printing.

Thanks,

Brian

You don't have parameter boxes for POSITION in the Tool Options panel?

I do have the LMB + Spacebar option. I also have POSITION. I thought there were also SCALE buttons and/or input in the tool options panel to key in exact MM values. I guess not. The heart model below is mine. The other one is from Google images of the transform tool options.

Hi

This is the default Transform tool in 3DC printing.

Move tool have different controls.

Do you installed latest version ?

If you need precise measurements, you can use the MEASURE tool for that purpose, as is shown midway through this video:
