I have an FBX file exported from 3DS Max. Using an FBX viewer, this is the model.

While importing into Blender, these are my settings (default)

When imported into Blender, this is the model.

There are some issue with this import.

  1. the transform for some of the object seem to be using the wrong axis system and perhaps also a wrong origin.
  2. The model is squished (scaled non-uniformly on 1 single axis.

Am I doing something wrong?

Blender version: 2.77a

    $\begingroup$ What other settings have you tried for the importer? Especially the manual orientation. Blender uses -Y forward and Z up. Other programs use -Z forward and Y up. If that doesn't help consider posting a link to the fbx. $\endgroup$
