Making dependent scaled copies


New member

I am trying to figure out how I can create a dependent copy of a model that is scaled by a certain factor.

I have figured out how to make a dependant copy and I can scale it but as soon as the geometry of the original model changes the dependent copy regenerates to the original size.

I was thinking that maybe there is a parameter that can be used in "relations" to scale the model? something that might be like" MODEL_SCALE_FACTOR=0.5" then each time it regenerates it will be set to the correct scale.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thank you!
