Inventor 2016 has a brilliant new Scale function included in the improved "Direct Edit" tools. It allows users to create a scaled up version of a part, without having to to a derive.
In the video below, I show off the new scale tool in Inventor 2016, as well as the classic derive method, and some iLogic code that my colleague Luke Davenport wrote, which scales up an entire part. I show how each of them work, and what happens to your parts parameters.
