• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Hi everyone,
I am trying to export an aircraft in from blender, so I used blender2msfs accordingly. However, when I load the aircraft in the sim, it is way out of scale (20x bigger) and is upside down. Did I do something wrong in blender?
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks.

Did you applied scale/location/rotation transform in Blender before exporting?

Before exporting anything, in object mode, select all objects , CTRL+A, apply all transforms

Also make sure the size of your object is ok by e.g. using the tape measuring tool in Blender

Ensure that your aircraft is aligned correctly in Blender. Z axis is up, Y axis is back and X is axis is left. See the picture and look at the X, Y and Z axis indicator in the top right.

Also ensure that in the exporter settings transform +Y Up is ticked.

As for the scaling it's 1 to 1 from Blender to MSFS (1 metre in Blender is equal to 1 metre in MSFS) so I don't know what you've done wrong there but I'd assume that you have not applied scaling. As Mamu says, select the object and CTRL+A, apply scaling transform. I would not recommend that you apply all transforms for an aircraft as there will be some parts where you need the rotation and location transforms to not be zero. But all scaling transforms must be 1.
