View Full Version : Free, simple script (Set Scale v1.0)

Hi all

I cobbled this script together the other day to help speed up the scaling of imported architectural plans / models etc.

Thought I'd share it with everyone.

Hope it's useful to someone!!!


P.S. It's very simple btw, so don't be too excited!!! :)

and the script . . .

(I wish you could attach images AND a file!)

Thanks for the script Matt,
Very useful :)

Perfect! Now that I have two architectural projects in a row.

Wow, Matt, I wrote almost the exact same script sometime ago, to help me with almost the exact same kind of work !!! I just never made it public because I thought "nah, who could find this useful" ! Hehe !
I named mine "real scale", and you had to always select just two points, and then tell it what their distance should be, either their X distance, Y, Z, or the true 3-dimensional distance.

I guess great minds do think alike, after all ! (how's that for arrogance posing as a compliment ? ;) hehe !)

I did think most people would have written something like this already!

Having never seen a similar script I posted this one for those who might not know _anything_ about lscript!

I was thinking of having a choice of which dimension to use, the true measured dimension (point to point) or the x,y,z delta. I have a 'measure points' script that displays both types of measurement already.

Hey thanks!

I'll give this a try today...

nice.... It works great. I wish I would've been smart enough to
come up with this. I could've been using it for a few years now. I'm one of those that haven't bothered to learn Ls. Serves me right. I'm glad someone is looking out for me! ... now I need a "make complicated roof" and a "finish project" Ls.

Thanks a bunch man.

Always glad to see someone provide something like this to the community. Thanks.

For reference, how does this differ from Absolute Size?

Cheers Matt..

An old thread, but I'm glad someone brought this back up since I apparently missed it in 2004. This is quite useful! Often I need to scale things quickly, and the best way is to take a known measurement in a CAD drawing and tell the computer how long that segment should really be.

Thanks Matt :D
