Instance Property


The scale factor applied to the node. Animatable.


var scale: SCNVector3 { get set }


Each component of the scale vector multiplies the corresponding dimension of the node’s geometry. The default scale is 1.0 in all three dimensions. For example, applying a scale of (2.0, 0.5, 2.0) to a node containing a cube geometry reduces its height and increases its width and depth. Scaling is applied relative to the node’s pivot property.

You can animate changes to this property’s value. See Animating SceneKit Content.
