Resize objects/windows

Postby luanacoelho » Tue Feb 13, 2018 8:57 am

Hello dear DesignBuilder users;
I am a new DB user;
I am working on a project where we do not have the the floor plans yet, but we have a picture of the final building we have to model. The tutor said we should get familiar with the software, therefore try to recreate the building by ourselves; He said it would be easy to edit the measures afterwards. Yesterday I managed to recreate the building, however I when I tried to resize the windows and the blocks I did not find any options to do it; I understand that the blocks can be extended by the drag toll, bu I was wondering if there is any way to resize it by typing in the new measures, for example, if I have a floor with 20x30x3.5 now and the actual size is 15x45x5 is it possible to change the block easily? the same with windows.

Thanks very much

I'm afraid that model scaling is not available in current versions.
You will need to redraw the blocks or use the Stretch object tool (available at toolbar). The Stretch tool can also been used to adjust windows.
