I've started using it, but they've changed the UI so much, the tutorials that are online are pretty much useless.

I think I'm missing something in terms of basic operations. (I know I'm missing something!)

Simple things like rotation of parts etc, and the extrusion stuff is very different.

Any one got good pointers to tutorials with the new gui?

I have not spotted how to do this but is there a way to get Meshmixer to reduce the size of an object by, say, 25% (all axes)? I know you can manually rescale using alignment but you cannot, as far as I can see, use that to get an equal reduction on all 3 axes.,

As Dim3nsioneer mentions, you can set the physical size of your model with the Unit/Scale tool.

You can also scale using the Transform gizmo ('t' hotkey). Click and drag on the the little white box in the middle.

If you are familiar with the old UI, the main change is that now many of the tools are in second-level menus that only appear once you have made a selection, above the selection tool parameters.

Sorry about all the out-of-date tutorials, unfortunately meshmixer is made by a very small team and nobody has the job of writing documentation/tutorials.

Hey meshmixer, we are still grateful for this tool. Please keep it alive! It is one of the best/funniest tools I ever had the joy to use.
