    If I scale a part/assembly, will it retain the scaling when it is part of a larger assembly?

      Hello All,


      So I screwed up all of my dimensions in a design. I thought the "radius" measure was actually a "diameter" measure, so all of my dimensions are 2 times too large.


      I know that scaling a part in SW 2017 does not scale the dimensions as well, but I was wondering if the scaling factor would at least carry over to a larger assembly?


      The reason I ask this is because when I try to change just one dimension of one sketch, it creates errors for the rest of the items in the model tree. This makes it so I have to redesign the whole part, and I would rather not do that.


      Thank you,
