Hi JD,

  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.
