Can I scale an assembly
Is there a possibility to scale an assembly without saving it as a 1 part or without scaling all the parts separately?
A good question - I though you could not scale an assemble so done a little bit of reading up there and found this...
To scale a part, create a new part and derive in the original part and set
the scale in the dialog box. I've attached a jpeg showing the Derived
Button and also the dialog you get after selecting the part to be derived in
the file dialog. To scale an assembly you basically do the same but have to
create an extra file that is a derived component that consists of the
assembly. Use the same method above but select the assembly instead of a
part. Save this new part and then derive this part and you will get the
Thank you for the question as I now have a little more knowledge with Inventor and what you can do with an assemble.
