  • applying scale and rotation
  • turning on use modifier stack in emission settings(solution found on stack exchange)

this is what happens when i add a particle hair system to any object

  • $\begingroup$ Hi and welcome :) Please use Blend-Exchange for uploading blend files, also please be specific as to what you have done to fix your problem, and clearly describe it for other users. Images of particle settings, the entire viewport, ect, are helpful. :) thanks $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Used your blend file. In my Blender 2.90.0 everything looks fine. All thair is emitted from the cube with the subsurf modifier. Maybe an addon messes up something? $\endgroup$

Just had the same problem. I've joined 2 objects (one with a modifier) and separated the meshes again into two objects. This copied a Bevel modifier on the object. The modifier caused the particle origin problem.

Either remove the modifier or tick the checkbox Use Modifier Stack in EmissionSourceEmit from. This solved the issue and the particles are emitted from faces again.

  • $\begingroup$ thanx for the reply mate but im having this error in every single blend file.....So im probably gonna reinstall blender and hopefully that does it $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 19, 2020 at 20:12
  • $\begingroup$ reinstalled blender its still doing the same thing....btw the hair is visible in the correct spot in wireframe mode and even in a render but not in solid mode $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 19, 2020 at 20:22
  • $\begingroup$ @RohithEyyani do you have addons installed that could cause this problem? Blender's preferences and addons are stored in the user directory and might be not affected by a re-install of Blender. $\endgroup$
