Scale Parts

Resize parts in your model, which is useful when working with an imported model that is associated with a different default unit system.

By default, parts are scaled around the global origin. However, you can select any snap point to make it the scaling center.

  1. On the Geometry tab, in the Modify group, click the Scale tool.

  2. Click a part.
  3. Enter a scaling factor.
    For example, a factor of 1.5 will produce a part 150% the size of the original.
  4. Click Scale.
