I have my units set to metric, centimeters, and unit scale to 1.0, meaning that each grid square ecuals 1 cm.

enter image description here

My object its about 17 cms long, so it is about 17 grid squares long. I all makes sense until now.

But, when I add the solidify modifier, I set a thickness of 3cm, and the thickness does not look like 3cm at all enter image description here

It looks like the solidify modifier thickness is using a different scale for some reason.

What can be happening here? How do I know what thickness I am giving to the model in reality?



The scale of your object is all over the place:

Apply the scale with CTRL-A in Object mode and try again. [1]: https://i.stack.imgur.com/yL8Ni.jpg

  • $\begingroup$ That is weird, since I scaled it using CTRL-A. If I set the scales to 1 my model looks really weird. Thanks for the hint! I did not notice it $\endgroup$ Nov 4 '20 at 16:43
