…The Z brush has another way to throw us a curve ball when dealing with scale.…Sometimes Z brush will apply a scale multiplier to a model.…It's kind of like a fudge factor that can really put a kink in your measurements.…Let's see what can happen and how to fix it.…Now scale offset is something that happens sometimes and it…can be a bit unpredictable when it's going to happen.…So this exercise file already has the problem built into it.…Now there's one big indication that you have this scale offset problem.…And that's when you're transposed manipulator measurements…don't agree with your geometry size measurements.…
So, let's go to the move transpose tool and we've got…a manipulator here from top to bottom it's about 100 centimeters.…Now, let's go to geometry and in the size sub palette, you…can see here that the height is reported to be 21 centimeters.…So, that's a big difference.…Now, the reason we're getting this offset is because under export.…There's a measurement right here called scale.…Now when your modeling for 3D printing you always want to keep this value at one.…
