I have a model that I want to shrink (not scale) on just the XY axis only. I want the Z axis to be locked. After a lot of Googling I discovered that Blender has a Shrink/Fatten tool… so I downloaded Blender.
A lot more Googling and I figured out how to load in my model, go to the modelling tab, press Alt+S, type in -0.1 (to shrink by 10%), but now I’m stuck… and my Google foo is running out… so here I have found myself.
The problem is that the Z axis is also shrinking by 10%, but I want it to stay where it is. I only want the X axis and Y axis to shrink. Shift+Z only appears to work when scaling, not when using the Shrink/Fatten tool.
Is there another way, or a way to lock the Z axis when using the Shrink/Fatten tool?
