Copy and Scale Simultaneously

Is it possible to Copy and Scale at the same time? For example, I copy a one inch circle and it creates a two inch circle, then a three inch circle, four
inch, etc. Or an array that scales each individual item by a certain percent? The MicroStation Copy command does this with ease, just enter your scale X and Y. I would like to find a similar command or a lisp for AutoCAD.

Not in a native command, but the lisp for this would be pretty simple.

I figured he meant 'scale' as in the command.

There is a lesson in macro economics in there somewhere. You have a good week.
