Earlier today I tried to export my model to Substance Painter, after doing that I realized that a part of my model is invisible in the program.

enter image description here

After searching the web for a bit I found out that negative scale can make mesh invisible, and after checking my scale I found it that it is indeed negative in that specific part of the model.

enter image description here

Now, the problem is that if I change the scale the whole mesh is getting messed up. Is it possible to change the scale without messing the object or fiddling with it too much afterwards?

Blend file:

Edit

Upon further inspection, I also noticed that from different angles some parts are visible from the back but not from the front, it looks like a normal issue but as you can see from the blend files all the faces are facing the right direction

  • $\begingroup$ You should also check Face Orientation view as part of inspecting a model. $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 9, 2021 at 15:36
  • $\begingroup$ @AllenSimpson I've checked the face Orientation and it is fine, I'll check the post you've sent and the Scale thingy in a moment $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Gorgious well it seems that Scale didn't change anything after exporting $\endgroup$

I just checked your model and you do have face orientation problems, the red area should be blue. In edit mode and with all selected go to Mesh > Normal > Recalculate outside.

After that, everything is fine
