scaling Component bodies with out using percentage. using dimensions measure and then changing the amount and having the whole thing scale

New to fusion 360, thank you for the help.
I have a component made from a svg file and I what to take that drawing as it is and scale it with one dimension length ,say 4.5 inches to .75 inches. But I do not want to have to figure out a percentage. I just want to measure the object with a line type tool and the change the shown length of the measure to .75 inches and have the whole thing scale down accordingly. I am starting with a "component" at the top tier of browser... then using photoshop to bringing in hand drawn svg file from Tiffs scanned than to PNG then go to a website for free svg converter from png then back to fusion insert SVG in Fusion 360. I want to them scale the whole thing as mentioned above without using a percentage that is in the modify tabs under scale. It seems you should be able to do it like the dimension tool. But this is not a sketch. it is a 3D component.

Please attach your model.  If you do not know how to attach your Fusion 360 model follow these easy steps. Open the model in Fusion 360, select the File menu, then Export and save as a F3D or F3Z file to your hard drive. Then use the Attachments section, of a forum post, to attach it.

Hi,

1. A 3 d object can be scaled uniformly in all axes (uniform) or, for example, non-uniformly only for the profile (xy).
2. Percentage specifications are not required.
In the scaling field you only insert:
Target value/actual value.
