Is this possible in SOLIDWORKS 2017? I am wanting to design something in 1:1 scale but 3D print it in 1:4, 1:24 or even 1:32 scale. Is there a way I can convert the 3D model and all the dimensions with in it to the specified scale automatically?
Any 3D Printer Software has the capability to Scale.
model at 1:1 and have the Printer take care of the scaling.
Awesome. Thanks for the quick reply. What if I was not printing it with a 3D Printer because of the size and just wanted to scale it down and use the dimensions to build it another way?
That depends on you Model, on a simple model you may want to try the Scale function in SW, but it does not scale the dimensions.
you can still use the Printer software, open source free downloads, but also the dimension will not scale just the Body.
also ACAD will let you scale a 3d model, maybe this would be the better option for you as you can re-dimension the scaled model,
