Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Why are my FBX imported meshes scaled differently?

Build Type: Source build of 4.12.5 from GitHub, compiled on Linux AMD64 w/GCC 4.9.3

Build Version: 4.12.5-0+UE4

Detailed description of the issue: I have a Blender model consisting of two meshes that is correctly displayed in Autodesk FBX Review, Visual Studio and the Unity engine. In Unreal Engine, one mesh is imported at the correct scale, the other is 100 times too small. Neither mesh contains a scaling factor.

The import scale factor I can set in Unreal Engine only effects the cube, not the cage.

Screenshots/Link to video: Here is the model in Blender. Notice that both meshes have their scale applied (= baked into the vertices)

Model in Blender

This is what I get after importing in Unreal Engine 4.12.5:

Same model in the Unreal Engine

Repro Steps:

  • Download the model I'm using: UnrealImportScaleProblem.zip

  • Import or reimport the .fbx model in Unreal Engine and see the scaling issue.

  • (Optional) Open the .blend file in Blender, export to .fbx again, get the scaling issue.

System Specs:

  • Gentoo Linux, AMD64, Kernel 4.4.6,

  • KDE5 and proprietary NVidia drivers 367.27

  • Blender version 2.77 and Unreal Engine 4.12.5 compiled with GCC 4.9.3

Product Version: UE 4.12
