I use Design Table to five times Scale up this part so that number of parameters avoided to get proper view but configured part is not a proper one. How to fix this?
No, you said you could only get the dimensions of the default configuration into the drawing. I was just showing that the dimensions of the scaled configuration come into the drawing OK for me.
You need to make sure the constraints of your sketches have relations to geometry that is going to move when you scale & remain solvable.
On sketch7, when you scale the offset, it becomes greater than Shell thickness & so leaves a gap. Because those bits don't meet the outside of the Shell, the references are lost for Sketch9.
Why can't you just use the scale command & suppress it in the Default configuration? Or is it not proportional over the whole part? I assume you want the Shell to have the same thickness wall?
Roll back to before the Shell & try adding the Scale before the Shell command & sort out the rest of the errors after as you roll forward.

Problem with scale command is in the drawing view it only gives the default dimensions. But I am going to try your suppress option.

You will have to manually dimension the drawing views. I'm assuming you used the Insert > Model Items method to show the dimensions, if so that is why only the original (default) dimensions are shown.
Your idea seems okay for a single part, if it is a part in an assembly there may be many problems. If you want to enlarge an assembly I found scaling up of each part in a design table by an equal value is the way to avoid problems.
In my case it is an assembly.

I do not know how it will work. Most important fact is I must be able to get enlarged dimension in the drawing.
When I create a drawing of S1 configuration & import annotations I get the enlarged dimensions showing. I haven't checked them all but they look like the large ones to me? Or if I add them manually they come out the large size.
Are you saying dimensions are too large? This is a part of a wind turbine. Miniature wind turbine dimension is too small which is a default one and also given in YouTube. I want to make it suitable to real world therefore I decided to make dimensions five times bigger.
Okay it is coming. Thanks.
It is given assignment in the class. Just said by word-of-mouth for a wind turbine design. As no dimension is given I have to resort to YouTube there is no other alternative.
1) Are you saying that you scaled the part up so that it would look correct in a drawing view?
If that is true, then you don't need to do that.
Each drawing view can be scaled independently. See attached video. Edit (forgot to attach the video.....it is attached now).
2) If # 1 ISN'T what you mean, then maybe you mean that you want to scale up a part but when you switch configurations it looks weird.
How are you running the scale?
a) Are you using the scale function? If so, then make sure that it is the last item on your feature tree.
b) are you simply trying to multiply all the dimensions by 5 inside the design table? If this is the case, then it seems like not EVERY dimension is linked to your design table. You can't just link the sketch dimensions, because you also have extrude depths and plane offsets, etc.
3) If # 1 or # 2 isn't what you mean, then I have no idea what you are asking.
