Changing size in 2D Drafting 2019

stars size.jpgI would like to change the size of a 2D object in Solid Edge 2D Drafting 2019 free version.  In the attachment: how can I set size of the star from 113,38 mm to 50mm? SE only allows to make smaller one line. How can I make the whole star smaller? I have used Autocad in the past and now also would like to save files as dxf.

With a shape like that it might be easier to scale the whole thing. Otherwise you would need to create many relationships and dimensions to parametrically control the shape. With simpler shapes like squares, hexes, etc. it's not hard.

If you just set up half of it with parameters then mirror it it would be easier.

Hi @pompi 

 

 

 

this is a video, showing what @bshand  mentioned already.

 

Select th ecomplete star and scale this geometry to the wanted value.

The scale factor is "Result divided by current value"

 

(view in My Videos)

 

 

Sorry for the German SE and for the irregular star!
