I would like to resize ArchiCAD's chandelier lamp. When placing in ArchiCAD, it comes in at almost 4 foot diameter. I would like to at least double the size of it; understanding that all of it, including light bulbs, will increase in size. But when I change the size (proportionally by activating the chain link) the hotspots comply but the object remains at it's fixed 4 foot diameter.
Any idea how I can make the chandelier components "scaleable" so I can resize it? Is there a GDL code I need to modify or input? Is it restricted because the chandelier object is actually a lamp? If the lighting becomes inaccurate after scaling the components, that is fine - I can always have them turned off and add lighting through Artlantis since I would prefer to have a large size chandelier than the minuscule 4 foot diameter one.
Thanks for reading these threads and updating the AC Libraries! Laszlo, your MUL command worked just fine. And to add further detail, I was able to scale it any way I wanted along the X, Y or Z by typing at top of the 3D script similar to:
This makes it 3 times as large along the X and Y, but only 2.5 times larger in height (we didn't want the height to grow as large as the length and width).
Thanks again - I am basic when it comes to GDL and am glad the resolution was just as basic as this.
