Click the Element selection mode button and click the legs you made from clones. Right-click on the Scale tool, select Non-uniform Scale, and scale the legs 150 in the Offset World Y axis (or more if you want thicker legs). Figure I-103 Figure I-104 57. A quick render (hitting F9) shows the legs look good but are a little rough. If you like this look, skip the next step. Otherwise, close the render window, click the Modifier drop-down list, and add a Smooth modifier to the stack to smooth the model.
