I am trying to scale a sketch by a scale factor, using a global variable to define that scale factor. It will not let me. Do you have access to global variables within tools/functions like scaling? If so, please help. If not, that is pretty unfortunate.
I have tried all the syntaxes I can think of:
scale_factor = "R@Radius" evaluates to .03in
scale_factor = int( "R@Radius" ) evaluates to .03 (I tried this in case the "inches" were causing a problem, as the scale factor is dimensionless)
then in the scale entities -> scale factor dialog box, I tried
with and without quotations.
