I am trying to create a object with some precise dimensions. Therefore, I need to also know precise lengths from the edges.

I found out how ot display them, but the values there just don't make any sense:

Dimension of the object: enter image description here

Length of the edges from one face: enter image description here

How can I display the "real" length of the edges?

In Object mode, select your object and CtrlA > Apply Scale.

You've also tweaked the Delta Transform values:

A solution I've just found is to create a simple cube, merge your object with this cube (CtrlJ) then separate it with P, it won't have any delta transform values anymore.

  • $\begingroup$ When I apply> scale, the object gets totally "dis"-sized and nothing looks like before. But at least, yes, when doing, and then both dimensions seams to match. How can I achive this, without breaking everything? $\endgroup$
