Well done William!!! I have tried to scale parts for years and have had loads of design offices looking for the answer,with no luck. I used to take the part into Rhino and then back into Inventor, always with some defect .
Very good tutorial , thanks

Thanks for the tutorial.

I have a somewhat related question:

I am trying to make a shell of a mesh feature after I have upscaled it.
The regular shell technique isn't working as a mesh feature has hundreds of surfaces. So, I decided to open the file with my part in it and then derive the same part but a little bigger using your method. I would then subtract out the smaller one to make a shell. Unfortunately, when I use this method to upscale, the 2 objects are not concentric so I cannot make the uniform shell that I want to.

I have attached the file of my mesh feature in case you want to see it

There is another way to scale the model in inventor, you can use Inventor Fusion. There is a command scale in there, and than you can back to Inventor again.
