I believe you can do this in pro casting but we don't have that. Does anybody know of a way to shrink an entire model. We have some models that we are having molds made for. I have been asked to shrink a whole model 1%.
Create a custom unit of measure to shrink the amount you want it and check the function to change the model. Then convert the model back to a standard unit of measure but tell it to keep the model the current size.
I don't know about creating a custom unit of measure to scale the model, but you really need Tool Design Option (TDO)
This will (among other things) allow you to have a 'real' shrink factor feature that scales about the barycenter or origin, and allows you to family table the x,y,and z shrink factors. It also scales any imported surface features as well. For our uses, the family table capability is a must as we have one part model with all instances included. TDO will also allow you to create silhouette edges, 'skirt surfaces' (fixed twist sweeps) and allow for copy-geom import. At the assembly level, TDO will allow you to create die stacks, split lines, parting surfaces, shut-offs, etc...
The 'scale' function normally included is crap. It one-time scales all of the linear dims by the factor and is not family-table friendly. Any non-dimensioned features (like imported surfaces) so not get scaled.
