# [X-post] Stretching obiects along an angle not along a line.

Does anybody know if it is possible to stretch objects as I specified in the subject?
Usually when you stretch an object you must specify a base point, an
angle towards you desire stretch it to and the lentgh of the stretching.
I wish I stretched my objects fixing the center of the rotation and the angle of "distortion".
Is it possible to do that? I will appreciate if I can explaine my problem to italian people.
Thanks, Alex.

No. What you are describing is not a "stretch".

Ok, Michael I'm wrong. But have you any idea how realize what I want? For example, think I drawed an ombrella full of details on it. I desire to easily draw the original ombrella with different aperture angles.
I hope I was clear in explanation.
Thank you
Alex.

Try scaling it, with the referenence point the centre of your umbella.
You'll have to work out the scale factor. No, that wouldn't work because the angles would remain constant.
Could you do something based on polar arrays?

make it a block, then you can change the x, y, & z scale factors separately

But this would be a linear distortion, not a circular one.

It doesn't work for me. If you want, I can send you my file (about 35 kB) to show you the result.
The external sides mantain their lengths but the internal objiects do not.
Thanks a lot.

It seems the shortest way.
