Reshaping objects


Tool set



The Reshape tool reshapes an existing object by moving, removing, changing, or adding to its vertices. Change the length of objects (including dimensions), reshape single objects, or reshape multiple objects at once. Reshape polygons and polylines, including lines drawn with the Freehand tool (which are considered polylines). In addition, specify exact radius measurements for circular arc control points. The Reshape tool can also be used to reshape 3D solids, roofs, stairs, NURBS curves and surfaces, 3D polygons, and other objects. Some object types allow free-form reshaping using a 3D dragger.

The modes and functionality available for the Reshape tool depend on the selected object or objects, and the current view. See the following topics for more information.
