Scaling a 3D model

Hello everyone,

 

This one has been annoying me for a while now, How do I scale a 3D model that I have imported originally from a ".step" file (or really any 3D model). I have come from SolidWorks, and this was very easy to do. All of the help files indicate that I need access to th original sketch.

 

Thank you.

Ashley,

1. Open the .stp file and save as Inventor .ipt file.

2. Start a new inventor part.

3. On the manage tab, pick derive part.  Choose the .ipt file that came from the .stp.

4. In the bottom left of the derive dialog is a scale factor.
