Scale a group of objects proportionally?

Messaggio da MelodyJane »

I have a chair with it's parts grouped under a null, and I cannot find a way to get a reading the total scale of the group. I'd like to scale it proportionally, or at least know how large it is. I could use a workaround by putting it inside a cube or something, but that's a complicated and time consuming way to have to do it for how often it would be useful. Does anyone know if it's possible to scale a group of objects proportionally, or at least get a reading of it's total size? Thank you!

Hi, unless you did the scaling in Object mode (not the default Model mode)

, you can't see the scaling value of a group. You can, on the other hand, see the total size of a group via the coordinates panel, just change the reference value from Scale to Size+
