Scaling an STL in FreeCAD

I found a new way to scale STLs in FreeCAD where you don’t need to use the Python console.

Import the STL.
Go to the Part Workbench.
Select the STL in the Model list
Menu: Part->Create shape from mesh…
Select the new part
Menu: Part->convert to solid
Select the new part
Menu: Part->Refine shape
Change to the Draft Workbench
Menu: Draft->Clone

Now you can adjust the scale in the properties window of the clone.
