    Stuck at work with nothing better to do so might as well plan my summer.

    I need to scale up something but am unsure how to do it..

    Say I have a model that is 26cm tall and I want to scale it up to 244cm, how does that work?.
    So a component that is 1.5cm tall becomes what in the new scale?.

    I hope get what I mean.

    I'll give it a try, someone can check my math.

    Divide 244cm by 26cm and you get 9.385 so the 244cm component (what you want) will be 9.385 times as big as the 26cm component (what you have).

    1.5cm X 9.385 = 14.077cm. So a 1.5cm tall component becomes 14.077cm tall at the new scale.
