Highlights

  • When you enable the Edge Length option, you will see the numeric value for any edge selected in the 3D Viewport (Location 102)
  • Hold the SHIFT key to get two points in a straight line Keep the CTRL key pressed to capture key points like vertices and a more precise measurement (Location 108)
  • Tip: To type different units, you must enter advance mode before using your keyboard. Press the = key before type a length. (Location 135)
  • To fix that scale and reset your factor to one, we have to apply the transformation. You can apply a scale by either pressing CTRL+A or use the Object → Apply menu. There you will be able to choose between Scale, Rotation, or use them both (Figure 1.19). (Location 191)
  • As a good practice, you can always press CTRL+A and choose “Rotation & Scale” before starting to add custom properties. (Location 195)
  • The object origins serve as the reference point for object location and also a pivot point for scales and rotations. (Location 200)
