Join Kacie Hultgren for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjust shapes with Ungroup, part of 3D Printing Project: Designing a Replacement Part.
…Now, we'll continue refining our design.…Or make some of the adjustments we talked about in our critique.…So, first or all, I'm just going to reorganize here.…I'm going to move this sleeve, just over to the side.…And I'm going to spin the knob, using the rotate handle and…the Shift key so that I'm looking at it, at its side.…And I actually like to drive this down so it's kind of in…the middle of the work plane just so it's easier to look at.…Alright, so what I'm going to do now is sort of make an adjustment…to this profile here so it looks a little bit more like our actual knob.…
Start by ungrouping.…We'll ungroup again…and one more time.…Okay.…So let's drag this profile out of the way so that we can work on it.…I'm going to click and drag and then hold the Shift…key as I pull it out to the side here.…You can see that guideline, by holding the…Shift key I'm constraining it to the axis to…make sure we can put it back in the right support once we are done with it.…Now I'm going to use the Ruler tool to bring this…
