Hello,

Is there a way to select a solid and simply scale it? It's incredible how difficult is to find the way to scale a simply 3D part without doing Insert-Copy.

Perhaps if you could explain what you are trying to do the community might be able to suggest another approach.

Hello,

 

I'm trying to scale a part. So I created a part and I want to scale it without insert it in an assembly. There is a scale option in wireframe operations but I can't find how to scale a "solid" part without using insert part or insert the part in an assembly.

 

Is there any "scale" icon to scale a 3D file or I need to open it into another part or assembly to scale it?

 

Regards,

 

Marc.

Hi,

 

There is no direct way in part environment "only" what you know (Insert part-copy)...

 

I agree with you, it should be useful... Smiley Wink

So,

 

There in no way to scale a solid in Solid Edge in its own file? You need to insert it in another file to scale it?!? Smiley Frustrated

 

I expect a simply scale body option in ST8 Smiley Wink
