Whenever I try to mirror my model, it overlaps and I can't find out how to fix it. I've tried setting the origin, but that doesn't work. This is my model: My Model

And when I mirror it, this happens: Mirroring My Model

When I apply rotation: Rotation Applied

  • $\begingroup$ Okay, thanks... Could you tell me which transformations do I apply? $\endgroup$ – Rawan76 Feb 20 '19 at 6:31

Look at the rotation values for your object. Your object is rotated 180 degrees in X and 90 degrees in Z

enter image description here

It was rotated in object mode but the rotation has not been applied.

Apply transformations by pressing Ctrl+A and choose Apply Rotation (but you should really apply Rotation &Scale, so that the scale is applied as well)

  • $\begingroup$ I did that, but now it's two of the same models next to each other. The other one's not even flipped. $\endgroup$ – Rawan76 Feb 20 '19 at 19:27
  • $\begingroup$ You need to adjust the pivot point (the center of your object) so that if falls at the point where you want the axis of simmetry see: blender.stackexchange.com/questions/353/… $\endgroup$ – user1853 Feb 20 '19 at 19:37
