New Symbol Stretch Plane Tool....

Recommended Posts

 

 

 

The new symbol creation tool is very cool and allows for any shape to be turned in to a symbol but the stretch plane tools don't seem to be consistent? Has anyone tried the tools? Do the stretch planes behave as expected?

 

EDIT: Solution is a few posts down not a bug, user error, surprise?

 

Here's the tool in action.

 

 

Here's what I think is a bug? EDIT: Not a bug - user error...

..and the file with that little symbol is 7 or 8 times larger than my typical template plan...hmmm

 

 

Then I closed the file re-opened it and it's back down to size?? Weird?

Try a single stretch plane, or check Uniform Stretch Zones Between if you have 2 Stretch Planes.

Is it not reasonable to expect both those stretch zones to behave the same?

NICE!! Did not know how that worked but solved it er...Solver

 

The video I watched today showed the 2 planes for the single axis but obviously just one plane will do the trick. Thanks again Eric.

Use multiple stretch planes only if you want the symbol to stretch just at those specific locations. 

Example:

  • a 6 panel door - use 2 stretch planes on the x axis & 3 stretch planes on the z axis (centered on the panel area)

That will cause the rails and stiles to maintain their widths.  It has always worked this way.  The difference is that now you can see the stretch planes and manipulate them with the mouse.
