how to scale an assembly (I changed it to an part already) so that the product can be made in different sizes????
can anyone help me i'm running out of time..
I can open your assembly file. All of the tree is suppressed.
It appears that in your part file (SW2020 edu), the parts that need adjustment due to (I'm assuming) different tank sizes would be better left as an assembly so that the varying parts can be configured to different sizes and then the assembly file would be configured with the varying parts at the required configuration.
great! thank you for your help. i just have to change some dimensions in the parts to change the whole assembly? would i not get a warning that some mates have been lost?

The Skeleton Sketch method is a good way to avoid [errors like] this.
If a product has to be made in different sizes you have to use Design Table.
Then all the fun is gone
1000 litre container, max. pressure +/- 500 mBar, wall thickness of 6 millimetre,
20 litre container gets wall thickness of?
i'm trying that right now. its a bit messy though to work with
Have you tried to merge bodies and then use 'scale' feture?
yes i did
Diederik Oppenhuis - Sounds like Mother Time is not on your side at the moment, but below is a good example of what you need..
Or use a Skeleton Sketch Part process (search for SSP) here on the forum
