Can I determine the scale factor and the type of scale (origin, centroid, etc.) of a scale feature without editing the scale feature?
You can roll back before the scale and measure something, then roll after it and measure again to determine the scale factor. And you can just observe if it is scaling about the origin or the centroid.
Another thing you can do is create a design table and manually add the parameter for the scale factor, which for uniform scaling is "$X_AXIS@Scale1" if the scale feature is called "Scale1". If you add that column to the design table, then close and reopen it then it will display the scale factor there. Unfortunately even though the "Scale about" setting can be configuration specific, I don't know if it can be controlled through a design table.
Thanks, but was looking for more of a RMB and was hoping that I had missed something obvious. Editing the feature and then just canceling is the best for keeping regen times down when there are many features in the model.
I just wasn't sure if you absolutely needed to avoid editing, for instance if whenever you edited the feature it crashed or something. But in general, as you said, editing is probably the easiest way.
