Q - question

Controlling size of 3D model by changing drawing dimensions in Inventor.

A - answer The size and geometry of a 3D model in Inventor can be controlled also by changing dimension values in drawing views.

In the drawing view, use the automatically inferred dimensions from the function "Retrieve Dimensions" (right-click on a view). By right-clicking on one of the dimensions created in this way and choosing the command "Edit Model Dimension" you can change the dimension value and at the same time automatically modify also the model geometry (will be reflected back also in the drawing).

The command "Edit Model Dimension" marks off the situation from the more usual "overriding" of the dimension text (fake dimension).
