I applied a texture on a box using the UV smart. I remark that the texture is scaled. How to correct this problem?

  • $\begingroup$ In object mode hit CTRL+A and select scale, then unwrap the object $\endgroup$

To avoid texture scaling on the mesh it is necessary to apply object scale before unwrapping. To apply the scale you need to be in object mode, then hit CTRL+A and select scale from the menu. Once scale is applied it is safe to unwrap the mesh without having scale distortion.

  • $\begingroup$ Even with CTRL+A in obj mode my model gets different texture scales and deformations...what's wrong according to you? $\endgroup$
