Reset internal scale to 1

Recommended Posts

Hi, is it possible to reset an objects internal scale to 1 without affecting its size?
For example: I got an object with scale 3 and size 400. I want scale to go 1 and size remains 400 therefore, affecting only objects internal scale. I am used from 3dsmax where this process is called ResetXform.
Thanks a lot

Freeze should do that I think, in the object properties/coord tab..

    Just select all objects either via the object manager or in view port Ctrl A, then freeze, they all get frozen at once.

    Check the manual, which has a very thorough description under 'Freeze All'. Basically it is the nearest we have to a direct equivalent of the Max function Reset Transform.

    The PSR of the object can be changed and it can often be the case that you wish this change to be its initial state.  Any further changes on top of that is hard to monitor when the values are kept from the initial change.  By using Freeze it gives that object a clean slate so to speak as if the Position, Scale and Rotation is at its default location.  When you freeze it zeros all these values out, but your notice that it keeps a record of them should you wish to unfreeze.

     

    This is the way I interpretate for general use.

     

    PS: As Cerbera has pointed out, right clicking on the freeze button and selcting help will bring up the manual and it gives a full detail consequence of not using Freeze.
