Is it possible to scale a sketch only along a specific axis? I know it is for solid bodies, but for some reason I don`t see that option under the scale function of sketches.
Workaround for the problem:
Extrude the sketch as a surface or a solid.
Scale the result
Convert edges of new face/solid in new sketch.
Maybe you can use Stretch Entities?
I tried it but it seems like stretch entities is more like 'move entities'. If I type a delta X or a delta Y in the property manager to stretch my closed spline then it just moves the closed spline instead of stretching it. Am I doing something wrong with this function? The documentation is not a big help either, it barely explains anything.
I don't know if there are any solidworks developers on this forum but however you're supposed to scale a sketch along one axis, that functionality should be moved to the scale function as it is for the solid bodies. It seems like the most logical place to put it.
Here's another work-a-round

I used to do this in Corel Draw back in 1990's
My first Corel Draw is version 2. And all even version were not "polished".
I've got an old pentium computer hanging around that runs our ancient vinyl cutter with Corel Draw installed. It's still useful for if I want to print a true 1:1 on the office printer. Same problem as this one really - scale a dxf in x and y independently.
And ... no need to contact with Corel Corp. VAR ... it just ... works!
