i am modelling a transport aircraft in 2.65.
I have used “import images as planes” to set up my top, side, and front view background planes.
Added a cylinder and have started to extrude and scale it along top view of my aircraft. All is going well until i go into side view and try to scale vertices to that view…omfg it does anything but what i want?
how do i scale top view, then change to side view and scale it without stuffing the top view one up???
I thought that it was a matter of simply choosing the scale command + y or z planes in each view but that doesnt seem to work?
I have inserted the file into this thread, but for some reason it shows the background images a pink boxes (dunno why) in any case that really doesnt matter as i just want to be able to edit the top view proportions without stuffing up the side view proportions and vice versa!
