hi

i'm working with blender..

i have a torus object..
the inner circel should be 7 units wide..

if you do that you get a wall about 2units wide.

how do i strink the torus wall from 2 to 0,7 unit with out changing the inner circle that has 7 units wide..

with scale i scale the hole object. if i select the faces i still scale the hole object..

If you press "Alt+S" in edit mode it blows up and shrinks the mesh.
if you use that and regulars scaling you´ll brobably get satisfying results. (remember to recalculate normals before alt scaling)

You can also edit the torus parameters when creating the torus in the toolbar on the left.

sometimes the normals are not correctly oriented when a mesh is automatically generated, using "alt+s" then makes the mesh scale in an explosive manner all over the place, since it is uses the face normals as a scale direction. =)

ctrl+n recalcs the normals
