If you make a sphere with command
shape sphere radius 5
you can change its radius using the surface operation sop command to rescale it
sop transform #0 radius 12
sop transform #0 scale 0.5
In general the objects created with the shape command cannot have their parameters changed after they are made. For instance you can’t change the height of a cylinder. But you can simply close the old cylinder and make a new one with the two commands on one line and it will achieve the same effect visually.
