This node defines a 3D scaling about the origin. If the components of the scaling vector are not all the same, this produces a non-uniform scale.


SoSFVec3f scaleFactor
The scaling factors in the x, y, and z dimensions. Non-positive values may cause undesirable results.


Creates a scale node with default settings.

static SoType getClassTypeId()
Returns type identifier for this class.

Action Behavior

SoGLRenderAction, SoCallbackAction, SoGetBoundingBoxAction, SoRayPickAction
Accumulates scaling transformation into the current transformation.

Returns the matrix corresponding to the scaling.
