Transform Controls

Because all elements in a replicator are attached to the control points of the replicator
pattern, changing the replicator’s position, rotation, scale, shear, or anchor point attributes
using the controls in the Properties Inspector changes every element in the replicator.
This results in the entire pattern being transformed at once. Modifying the anchor point
moves the anchor point for the entire pattern—it does not change the anchor point for
the elements in the pattern.

Selected replicator

Replicator with Shear X value of 12 degrees

Note: The Scale parameter resizes the replicator, affecting the size of the pattern elements
in X, Y, or Z space. To modify the size of the pattern without changing the size of its
elements, use the parameters in the Replicator Inspector.
