Scale assembly or parts?

I have any assembly that somehow got created in inches instead of
millimeters. 10in instead of 10mm. Can you scale a whole assembly?

Thanks,

Barclay

Can you just change the units?

The only way I know how to do this is to make a derived part of the assy and
then a derived part of this derived part so that you can scale). Of course
it's going to be one big ugly part...

Thanks, it came from MDT so I think I can scale it there or redo the units.

what about going into the parameters d-box and typing "10 mm" in the
Equation column instead of changing the units in the units column?
