You are correct, if I choose no, then it works. If I click yes, then they get rescaled. Actually, now I understand what this box is for. I didn't understand it before :) However, I would think that if I scale the imported then apply, regardless of what my initial option was, shouldn't it behave as I control it upon applying it?

Regardless, there may be a use case for this behavior. At least I know how to revert it back (Geometry->Edit Scene Scale)

 

By the way, you always answer quickly, even on the weekends. Sometimes I feel bad for posting questions on weekends. Thanks a lot!

The 21st version is good.But not from version 22~23 ㅠㅠ

.3dcoat 4.8.22/3dcoat 4.8.23

 The version is not available.

3dcaot 4.8.23SL 
It works very well.

Oh. That's right. SL stands for Sculpt Layers. Andrew is offering builds with it and a version without it, for stability purposes.

Hi at first thanks to try keep unit scale between session for new beta. But what I really annoying thing is,, 3d coat unit seems not apply for grid.

I import 1m cube from blender with default scale (1.0) as obj.

then I set  Unit  etc ,

1 in sculpt room>geometry>Edit scene scale ,   scale 1.00 and all off set = 0.00   ,

2  geometry > Define mesurement units  , set  Units = Meters,  Voxel per unit = 1000 (so I hope to generate voxel  1 mm density), Unit scale = 1.00

3  I set Measure tool option,   Units as meters = 1M

So in my pic, it seems correctly shown. But I needed to tweak around for Grid units,,,    as I mentioned,,  I set 1 unit as 1 meter.

but 3d coat grid seems not use the 1M units, even though I set up-so.

I needed to set Grid Step as "1000," "0.001" (edit),  then it can show reasonable 1m grid (division 1) .  when  I set Grid Step as 1 without knowing it,, my obj is too small in 3d view. 

so I needed to serch around what cause problem still.  untill I set grid step as 1000,  I can not find any grid to get aproximate size,   without mesure tool.

I do not think, it is reasonable.  usually I expect, mesurement units = grid units.

  so Grid step seems try to count voxel density too?    and I hope to know, what means, "keep unit scale between session" ?

because once I close 3d coat, then next time I import new obj for paint room, I needed same step from scratch. 

 So I need to save scene first, and everytime use the scene untill import obj? 

 I definetly suggest, please offer option to use same unit scale, and grid setting in user preference. It is most important setting I believe.  

once I decide it, do not hope to change it for each session.  without I need to change them. 

It  is not useful, just to get same unit scale,,  If  I need to keep session or I need to use same saved file to import obj,  everytime.

3d Coat  beta  (windows 4.8.23(64bit)) ,  winows 10 XP.

Even though I change "voxel per units" from 1 to 100 , there seems no change about,  geometry "voxel density" 

So it only matter for 3D grid ?  if So there seems no reason, we have menu for "3d Grid custom density"

I change "voxel per units" 1  to 100" ,  but keep measurement unit as 1m.    and import same obj, it do not change voxel density, when I check it with wire frame view.

But the voxel per units effect 3D  "grid". 

There are some properties  about "unit" ,but each unit means is really un-clear.

eg I change paintroom> measurement tool> tool option> measurements units ,from M to cm,

Basically I hope,  it never change actual geometry size. just change how represent actuall size.

so I hope 1M cube need to show as 100 cm.  but it not work so.  if I change "mesurement units",

1m cube change as 1cm.   at same time it change grid size.   

 

I think, to measure geometry for actuall world

1 world units .    it decide "1 unit distance" to import and  generate mesh.  from import format each values.

2  measure tool units ,  it never effect mesh size.   just change how represent "length". so 1M length = 100 cm  , if it not work so,  it can not work as measure tool.

3 3D view Grid density,  it simply decide sub grid counts of 1 units.  

4 voxel density, it decide voxel (for sculpt) counts for 1 units 

every 1 unit length should be same. and it decide by "world units"

So about 3d coat, each tool "units"  represent what value?

Can anyone else confirm that using numeric input for Rotation is not possible with 3DCoat build 4.8.23SL? I tested it in 4.8.20 and the widget LMB + SPACE bar works. Seems broken in 4.8.23SL, and obviously, there is no way to type in a numeric value in the Tool Options panel since Andrew removed those options for some strange reason.

We REALLY need a means to set what axis the camera will look down when it creates these thumbnails. Othewise, we often have to rotate the model 180 degrees, which is a big PITA.

When doing the lugs on this tire (cloning, transforming and snapping) I unknowingly created additional UV maps (default_1) The real map is labeled "RearTire" and I can find no way to move the contents of the rogue UV map to the one I want short of deleting its contents so I can delete Default_1.  Why these new maps are  generated from a clone (sometimes and not others) is a mystery to me.

Solution: With Commands>Unify UV. A tool I was not familiar with. I found it looking for a way to delete a hidden point.

Bug that occur in 4.8.23 (but not in 4.8.20)

Baking displacement from surface sculpt mode create a shelled mesh

How to reproduce it :
Open the defaut sphere in surface sculpt mode
Create an auto retopo mesh
In retopo room bake with per pixel painting with displacement
In sculpt room, the sphere has now a thickness, a shell. Another sphere  appeared inside the first one

Problem is, if it is not a sphere, the thickness shatters the mesh outwards in areas with detail.
