Stretch Planes and Zones

Recommended Posts

I have watched the video about stretch planes and zones so many times and I still find it nearly impossible to control the changes I try to make on furniture.  I am missing something in the concept of how to do it.  I am trying to customize a bed by stretching the headboard only.  I can't seem to make it work. And when I do play around with the stretch zones or planes, the image changes just by placing the zones, before I have even edited it, which adds to the confusion for me.   Alternatively, I would create my own bed and headboard, but cannot make the solid polylines look soft like a fabric covered headboard would look, with padding and rounded edges.   Are there any other instructional tools that I can go to?  

Thank you for your help!

Are you trying to just make the headboard taller?

 

 

No I am trying to make it the length of the wall, 12'.

This simply isn't possible to do with Stretch Planes or Stretch Zones.  You'll need to either model it manually or break that symbol down into 2 parts and resize independently.

Kate,

Is the headboard currently wider than the rest of the bed?

If so, you can just

  • Place stretch planes on each side of the bed so they are just intersecting the headboard
  • Do not check the Stretch Zone box
  • When you place and resize the symbol you will need to open an select "Create CAD Block"

It is not bigger, no.
