Scale model in J-Link?

In Creo Element Pro (Wildfire 5) what is the J-Link equivalent of: Edit > Scale Model ?

RE: Scale model in J-Link?

As far as I know scaling cannot be done with the APIs.


It might be a good idea to try using a mapkey that is executed by BaseSession.RunMacro().

Scale model in J-Link?

It can’t be done directly but you can go through an assembly recursively and hit all the models with a change of units with appropriate options. I just finished a code that allows users to scale an assembly and it uses that approach. It’s done with toolkit so I don’t know about J-Link.

RE: Scale model in J-Link?

I somewhat recall that in the pre-Wildfire days, we effectively scaled by changing the units.
Does anyone have some example J-Link code to do this?


And yes, it is my intent to create a J-Link app to recursively scale an assembly.
The recursion part is not difficult.
