Hi, everyone

I use ANSYS 14.5.

I have drawn some complex geometry by using CATIA.

I was imported that file in DM successfully.

However, I wanna reduce the scaling(or dimension) by 10, remaing same ratio all direction.

for example, the reference length is 10m, the reference height is 20m.

I want two other geometry, length and height 5m/10m, and length and height 1m/2m. surely, I also want to have reference geometry.

If the geometry is simple, scaling reduction geometry will draw newly. but that geometry is very complex, therefore I hesitated re-draw.

Anyone help me.

Will Create > Body Operation > Scale do the job? You'll need to read up on the DesignModeler guide so that you get the scale factor as you want.
