Objects scaling themselves?!
show user profile  Westcoast13
I have a max scene which has about 20 objects in it that have been imported from CAD models.

The file was fine, all objects scaled correctly and i had it sitting in a lovely studio. Yesterday.

Today, when i go to open the file, the small preview in the window is fine but when the file opens, some (not all) objects scale themselves up by about 500%. Needless to say, i don't need this at 1:20 on a Friday afternoon!

Any suggestions that might stop this would be excellent!

/edit. It looks like the objects causing the problems are xref objects. I didnt set them up like that, what can i do!!!???

Have you checked the units setup is the same in the original xref scenes and the target scene? I remember xref being very unpredictable if the two scenes are set differently...

I think you are right, but i don't want to start mucking about with the reference files because i didnt set them up. I could end up in a worse state than i'm in now!! I'll load them in from the original files and merge my studio setup. I have to do the materials again though. :-(
