So it can be done LP....I assume with great pain? Im used to Survey software which is made for it...so Maya really annoyed the hell out of me. Scaling is always painful, I have however got used to using the grid and altering that to various grid spacing when needed, found that quicker but still cumbersome. Still your post was useful to me...thanks mate.
