I have a few hundred objects, I'd like to scale them individually, so each one is made larger, but all I can figure out is how to do it, just how to make the group larger, so to get the effect I'd have to re-size each one - in my old (nurbs) modellor we would just selct the whole group and expand by normals, thus doing in in one stroke - how is this done in lw, or is it not done, or is it a plug in or something?

Unfortunately, I don't think this is possible in LW.

But, there may be a plugin, I'll try and search for one too, now that it is on my mind. I'll post with an update if I find anything.

"smooth scale" or to do it interactively you can use "move plus" and use the right mouse button.

There's also something called "Point normal move". Very helpful for me all the time.
