scale factor By simon

Scale factor lets you adjust all the sizes in the model at once...

By default, you should probably leave it as 1, which means that all the other sizes could be taken at face value.

Then if you want to make the model 20% coarser, you can come back and set the scale factor as 1.2. Get it?

Scale Factor times Max Element size gives you the largest element in your model. For Octree, this is the size of the initial subdivision when Octree is first initialized. You can read more about this in the theory sections of the Help.

If scale factor is larger than 1, it increases the mesh sizes throughout the model. If it is less than 1, it reduces them. Note, it changes how they behave, but it doesn't change the nominal values as you see them in the UI.
