Why are the axes effected by the Vertical Exaggeration control in Voxler's Viewer Window module?

Increasing the Vertical Exaggeration stretches or compresses the axes because the Vertical exaggeration control is stretching the entire screen graph display in the Z direction.  When the Vertical exaggeration is changed, it sets the ratio of X and Y scale over the Z scale.  Using this control is typically used for a quick view of a project that requires some vertical exaggeration or when the Axes modules are not necessary or not being displayed.  The stretching affect is shown below on the Z axis.

 This image is sample file Helens (ContourMap).voxb with a vertical exaggeration of 5. (Found here: C:\Program Files\Golden Software\Voxler 4\Samples)


If you would like to use axes and still use the effect of the Vertical Exaggeration, you will need to use a Transform module. The Transform module performs the scaling on the data instead of stretching the entire scene in the Z direction. The same project is shown below but is scaled using the Transform module instead of the Vertical exaggeration control; notice the difference in the way the Z axis is displayed.

Same file as above, this time with a Transform module where the Z Scale has been set to 5 (click the Transform module in the Network Manager, then in the Property Manager, click the Transform tab.  Type 5 in the Z field).


More information about using the Transform module can be found in Voxler's help.
