I have human model imported into the scene: Human model **before** Scale transformation applied

When I select it, click Ctrl+A and choose Scale, it's appearance changes to this:

Human model **after** Scale transformation applied

Is it just the visual change? How can I make the model remain the same after applying Scale transformation?

  • $\begingroup$ Was the scale negative before applying ? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @MrZak it is negative indeed. -0.001 $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @MrZak rescaled the scene to make it positive and now it applies without changing object's appearance. Thank you! $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Go ahead and add that as an answer to your own question to show that it's solved. I'm not sure why you "rescaled the scene". $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @MrZak based on your question about model probably having negative scale, I suggested that it was the cause, so I rescaled it (all the objects on the scene to keep proportions). $\endgroup$

Object had negative scale. Before applying scale, hit S to rescale it to get positive values or hit N to bring Transform Properties Panel and retype scale there. Object will mirror around it's axis, by the way.
