This may seem like a silly question for a product called Dimension, but how do I set the dimensions of an object.

Simple example, I have a cube and I want to scale it to be 100cm x 60cm x 5 cm. How can I do that?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

you don't... 3d is 100X, 60Y and 5Z not 5cm or 5 miles

OK Semantics Let me rephrase... how would I set a cube to be 100X, 60Y, and 5Z?

As Adobe said in another thread, Dimensions works in cm, however, regardless of the actual unit, how would I proportion a cube as mentioned above.

I'm used to CAD, Blender, and other 3D packages where setting these values is pretty fundamental, so I assume I'm missing something really simple.
