I have extruded a floorplan. To stay relatively close to the elements that I need to extrude, I have chosen a certain grid scale.

However, the model size is not what I intended.

I wanted to make the front wall like 6 metres.

Is there a relatively easy way to change the mesh size so that the front wall becomes like 6 metres while keeping the grid element size?

Thank you.

  • $\begingroup$ You can change the Scale in Properties > Scene > Units (visible in your screenshot) to adjust the units without actually changing the geometry. $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Jun 29 '15 at 21:28
  • $\begingroup$ Where is "Properties" located at, please? I am having such a hard time finding things in Blender. I have found a "Scene" tab under "Grease Pencil", but I guess that is not what you meant. $\endgroup$ – tmighty Jun 29 '15 at 21:30

  • $\begingroup$ Do you mean Scene->Units->Scale? That would change the grid size for me. I tried to avoid that. $\endgroup$ – tmighty Jun 29 '15 at 21:45

After setting the scene scale in the Blender Properties panel so that the units report 6m, you can adjust the grid scale under the display properties, in the 3D view Panel (press N hovering over the 3D view), until you get the result you want.

Any asset (object, mesh, texture etc) can be scaled independently of the world scale or grid size.

Here is a link to the official blender manual pages for using the scale tools

    $\begingroup$ I think the OP is talking about the scale of the Units, rather than the actual size of the object. $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Jul 1 '15 at 0:29
