Hi,

I can't seem to find any tool that will let me see the numerical dimensions of a 3D object and let me make numeric changes to size the object accordingly.

There must be such a tool in LW9.3?

With thanks in advance,

Scott

You could try the free plugin setscale... check out this thread...

...and you can use the "absolute measure" tool if you want to figure out specific sizes. The "absolute size" plugin which comes with LW might be useful as well.

Thanks I appreciate it. That is what I was looking for an couldn't find anywhere. I had to manually load that extension, it was somehow not installed when I installed Lightwave 9.3

Here's my measure Lscript which, like the 'Set Scale' tool gives measurement of two points in XYZ, Delta X, Delta Y and Delta Z coordinates.
