About Scaling Sketch Geometry

You can scale the sketch geometry within an active sketch. You can also scale the sketch geometry when you paste a copied geometry or import existing geometry within an active sketch.

Consider the following points when you scale sketch geometry:

• You can use the translation handle as the scaling reference.

• You can select a reference to define the scaling reference. This reference can be a sketch point, sketch coordinate system, endpoint of geometry, construction, or reference geometry.

• The scale factor appears along with the scale handle. The scale factor lists the scaling with respect to the size of the original geometry.

• The scale factor dimension is a temporary dimension. You can select this dimension and specify the scale factor or specify a value in the Scale collector of the Rotate Resize tab.
