Height form? Answered

Picture of

When I create the form I can't introduce the height, only the x and y dimensions. When I modify it manually I don't really know the initial height.

When you create a form (a box in this case) you should be able to enter x, y, and z dimensions to create the box's initial state. When you're using the Edit Form tool (what you're showing in the screenshot), you can move, rotate, and scale features of an existing form. For example, you can select a single face, then Edit Form and you'll be able to move that face by a specified dimension or by dragging the arrows.

With the whole body selected (as in the screenshot), if you click on the first button under Transform Mode, you'll be able to scale the object using the scale handles. If you want to translate a whole side of the box, select all four faces, then you can drag the translate arrow by a specific dimension if you want.

Hi Jon-a-tron thanks for the replay, turns out that my computer was slow and for some reason I was doing double enter and skipped the dimensions window
