Adjusting Model Sizes/Scale?

Adjusting Model Sizes/Scale?

Received this question from an FTC team that created their lift sub-assembly from all custom designed parts...

When they tried to then include the lift onto the robot, it turned out that the lift is much-much bigger in size than the robot... so somewhere we messed up the dimensions/scales...

What can we do now? Can we re-scale the lift? so we do not have to redraw every part?

I how can I make sure that the dimension/units for the tetrix parts are the same than the ones I use for the custom parts?

The image shows a tetrix flat bar next to the bottom of our lift...

Yes, sounds like you have mixed units in the models. To confirm, open one of you new models and check the units; File, Prepare, Model Properties and pick change for the Units.

Could be that your model is MM and the values were input as INCH or vice-versa. In either case, an easy fix, just change the units and chose the appropriate scaling method from the Changing Model Untis window.
