Blender 2.79.

I draw a cube entering the measures manually as scale values.

Then if I select the Ruler/Protractor tool, I see a measure that is the double value against the entered value.



Scales values aren't dimensions. Scale works as a factor of the object's original dimensions.

I.E if you look at the default cube, its scales are 1:1:1, but if you look at its dimensions: 2:2:2.

If you set the scale at 2, the dimensions will be 4:4:4. If you set the sclaes to 0.5, dimensions will be 1:1:1.

  • $\begingroup$ Oh my, you are right but I'm using scales cause I'm not able to find the dimensions values .. $\endgroup$ – SteMMo Aug 18 '20 at 13:18
  • $\begingroup$ They are displayed in the sidebar, just bellow the scale values if I remember well. $\endgroup$ – L0Lock Aug 19 '20 at 9:35
