Scale a part

Hello, I am a new inventor user. I made several parts but I made their dimensions wrong. For example instead of 62mm I made 6,2 mm. I want to scale them but after scaling I want to use them like an original part. I want to change the dimensions when needed. Is it possible? In the forum I read that deriving a part is solution but hot it works? I didn't understand exactly. Thank You

I recommend that you simply do the parts over from scratch (and correctly this time).
Almost every part I have ever made - I did at least two attempts and often many many more than two.

The experience will be good and it won't be nearly as much work as you might think.
