Scaling 3D Symbols

Recommended Posts

Is there a node available that will allow scaling of 3D symbols, particularly asymmetrical scaling? The "Scale" nodes seems to have no affect on symbols. Thanks!

Hi,

When you create symbol convert it to a group and this allows you to scale a 3D symbol. Like extrude along path without the convert to group selected I have not been able to scale or EAP a symbol not created this way.

Will look into it t see if this can be resolved.

Excellent, this may do the trick, thank you! Never would have thought of converting the symbol to a group... I could not find the "Get Symbol" node in the library, but I notice it's not represented by a gradient; is it custom? It appears to do the same thing as the "Symbol" node in the BIM library? Thanks again, Will

Hi,

If you go to this post, second one I have shared my library of collected nodes that have been posted over time which include the symbol one from DomC and many more, follow the video as to how to file them so you can see them in your drop down menu.
