Scale by percentage

I have scaled projects up and down could we get a “%” scale? Similar to Rotation were we plug in scale to a percentage?

Thanks Steve

@Brandon_Cullum Tried to get this in future requests but failed!!

Sorry, maybe a dumb question.
What other values would you expect to enter for rotation? Like 5"?

I do like the idea of percentage scaling, but making the data entry boxes perform math would be more effective IMHO.

For your example you could click onto the existing height value and add *1.25 (to make the value 25% larger)… or +5 (to make it 5" larger) … essentially you could accomplish the same result of percentage changes AND it opens the door to more uses as well👍

Same ability of math for the coordinates as well would come in handy.

NOT rotation, but have a field like rotation. I have had several projects I have made scale models of that It would be nice to be able to scale an entire workpiece by a percentage to make scale models. Across several work pieces this would be beneficial. Thanks Steve

Do you mean that the post didn’t go into future requests?

I really like the idea of having the data entry boxes perform the math. This would be very similar to how solidworks functions:
