I've got a problem while unwrapping UVs. When I'm unwrapping UVs it showing me this message. enter image description here

Why is this happening?


It's because your object has been scaled on some axes more than others in object mode.

For example:

It should be fine, but if you are having problems you could try applying the scale by pressing CtrlA> Scale in object mode. This will apply the object mode scale "offsets" to the mesh data, resetting the offsets to 1 without changing the appearance of the model. Note that this could affect modifiers such as bevel. See Why are the longer edges being beveled more?

  • $\begingroup$ Pressing ctrl+A , is it as like freezing transforms ? Actually i am from Maya. $\endgroup$ – Samir Jul 30 '14 at 9:59
  • $\begingroup$ @SamirChandraBarma Yes, it is the equivalent of freeze transformations. $\endgroup$ – Ray Mairlot Jul 30 '14 at 10:02
  • $\begingroup$ It should be fine? No it's not fine at all. It unwraps my entire model into infinitely narrow lines. $\endgroup$ – AzulShiva Dec 27 '16 at 22:14
  • $\begingroup$ @AzulShiva Sounds like you have a particularly extreme non-uniform scaling then. Have you tried applying the scale (Ctrl+A)? $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Dec 28 '16 at 0:05

    $\begingroup$ @Azul I don't suppose you could upload the file? $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Dec 30 '16 at 20:12
