Hi i am trying to design a case for the Ipad mini; i have downloaded a STEP file which ive imported onto creo but i dont know how to edit the file. I need to design a case for the ipad mini and for that i need an exact copy of the ipad only slightly bigger so that i can modify it and make it into the shape i want.

Edit... I see you are using Creo Elements Direct. I am not sure how to best address this. Below applies to Creo Parametric.

You might begin with trying the offset feature to create a new surface. You can then thicken the surface and work on it, or you can create a surface quilt model of what you want, then thicken it. No right way... just a lot of work.

You might also be able to scale the import file. There is a scaling option in the Warp feature. There are also scaling options in the modeling. Not sure the best way to proceed for your needs.

Feel free to explore and ask more specific questions as they arise.
