actually there are 3 types of cubes. the "Regular" Cube that you see in most episodes of Voyager, the one in The Best of Both Worlds and in Q Who is 1500m x 1500m x 1500m the Tactical Cube as seen in Unimatrix Zero is the same size. 1500m x 1500m x 1500m the cube in First contact is called an Assimilation Cube (referred to as a Fusion Cube in ST Armada 2). it holds a sphere inside of it and is 3000m x 3000m x 3000m however this does not answer my question: how do you re-size a model?:confused:

It's a stripped down version of 3Ds Max 4, that does not allow you to render images like the full versions do. However it is free and works just fine for scaling models or just about anything else you would like to do in the production or editing of a model for BC. I use milkshape to scale models myself, just because of the simplicity of importing in NIF format and merging another model for comparison. The model I use most for scaling standard sized ships, is the Constitution II at 305m. Btw, milkshape is also free, for a 30 day evaluation and then 30.00 to buy.
