Dear all.

I want scale down my original igs file to 1/58.
How can I put 1/58 into scaling factor option?

Did you try:

alexey at daphne in ~$ surfaceTransformPoints 

Usage: surfaceTransformPoints [OPTIONS] <surfaceFile> <output surfaceFile>
  -scale <vector>   scale by the specified amount - eg, '(0.001 0.001 0.001)'
                    for a uniform [mm] to [m] scaling
For 1/58 scaling in all directions vector should be (0.01724 0.01724 0.01724)

Thank you Alexey.
I know that way you suggested, but if I put scale option like that, I should truncate some digits...
I wanted to know how to scale down precisely...

thank you for your reply!
