If I want to use this node on the "Attribute" mode, how can I use it? what is it used for? I tried to play by typing some built-in attributes next to the Factor input. It changed the scale but I still don't know how to use it. I mean how is the scale calculated? The manual says:

Use the values from the attribute to move each point by a different amount.

Why points should be moved? Is it about scaling or moving or both? or is it just my english?

I know how to use the "Vector" mode.

  • $\begingroup$ The link to the manual is broken, Do you mean this? Point Scale But your quote is actually from Point Translation. In the title of this question you wrote Point Scale. I think you confused them, didn't you? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Blunder Yes, that's the link (point scale). If you read the subtitle (Attribute), you'll find the quote. Maybe it's confused in the manual. That's why I'm asking. $\endgroup$ Mar 17 '21 at 20:33

You can use this node to scale points by amount in a specific attribute. For example, I generated an attribute using Attribute Proximity node. Attribute Proximity generates attribute based on distance between vertex and closest point in geometry, I called it "new_attr":

Next I scaled vertexes by this attribute. Of course, to view scale you need to have some instances distributed by them, so I distribute Suzannes.
