Part Scaling in Onshape

Hi all,

I am trying to scale a finished part, does anyone know if Onshape does scaling?

    You can choose Scale uniformly as the transform type with the Transform tool.

    This just saved me so much time.  I actually needed to scale a sketch, but used this scale part function, then just created a sketch from the part.

    I have no problem defining the entities, of which there are 4 in my example, but, what on earth will be the point? I can't make anything work?

    Any point selection should work - that is the point that does not move in scaling. It is only important if you want to control end position of the part.

    I have a cylinrical part that is 60 mm in length.  I want to change that to 40mm.  But I don't want all the other dimensions to change.  How do I accomplish this?

    Change the original sketch or extrude. If your looking to keep both sizes then look into part configurations. I you're just not sure about the height when starting out, a configuration variable can be used that is easy to change.
