Hello, I see that you can scale a sketch smaller or bigger by using a scale factor, but I would like to know if there is a way to scale reference sketch geometry in SolidWorks? Thank you.
Is this what you are talking about?
Actually, I would like to know if you can scale a new sketch by referencing a known existing entity(like in AutoCAD), such as existing line work with a known dimension that you would like to scale the new sketch in reference to(scaling larger or smaller) while keeping the new sketch design intention in complete proportion to itself?
If you have this sketch as in insert from the design library
then yes you can scale it up and down.
But if it is controlled by dimensions then no because the
dimensions are in control.
By "reference sketch geometry" do you mean axes and planes? And are you referring to their individual sizes or their spatial positions?
one possibility - make your sketch, before exiting the sketch, select everything and make it a block. then the block can be scaled in its property pane. I don't know how to tie that to an existing line...
i beieve he asking if you can scale a sketch like you scale in autocad, where when asked to input the scale you can click 2 points in autocad and that sets the scale amount...just throwin that out there..lol
