Scalling a model.

I have a model that I want to scale down with IV but it is not an native file to IV
it is a Pro - E file
and the derive feature will not scale this model down! is there another way to scale down this model with IV?

Thank you in advance for any help on this matter.
:)

What is the part? If it not too complex, this add-in on the labs page that might help. It lets inventor recognize and create features out of imported geometry. It's located at:

No guarantees it will help, but it might be worth a look.

William, instead of deleting your question, you should answer it. there should be someone who don't know how to do it.

Well you can't scale an part or assemble from another software with the derived feature that IV has it needs to be a IPT or IAM that you use the derived feature with....
But Kevin Dobson found a good solution @ http://labs.autodesk.com/utilities/feature_recognition/
unfortunately it does not work with the latest addition 2012 Inventor :(
