To the best of my knowledge, NX won't do what you are describing.


You can apply a "non-uniform" scaling to a body, which allows you to enter independent scale factors for the X, Y, and Z directions, but each is a constant scale factor only (not driven by an equation or law curve). Global shaping, as mentioned by @Abeinjapan is probably your best bet.

We can do something close to what you are asking for.

I created a solid I wanted to scale.

Then I created a sketch with two splines by poles (constrained to a H line). Same number of poles. Make the splines different length and drive the 'poles/scaling zones' using dimensions. 

Next create two law extensions and ensure to maintain the parametrization of the splines. 

Use the two surfaces as driver for the global shaping by surface.


See movie.

Enjoy NX!
