BTW, I haven't tried it out, but Blender has a scale multiplier when importing or exporting. You might just be exporting the mesh 10x higher, which suspiciously enough is the same as the default value for that multiplier.


My first failed attempt was scaling down the object vertices, however object scaling worked perfectly.

In Blender, use object scaling to get the desired size results. No scale modifications required in NifSkope


I'll be editing the top of this post for quick access to the answer of this problem for impatient people like myself


Results after changing the object scale to "0.1" in Blender

I know, I'm late, but there's a 'better' solution for editing a lot of meshes, without manually setting the scale (& rotation) each time:



When importing an .obj file, into blender on the right side of the file selection menu there's a bunch of settings. Set 'clamp size' to 1.0 for the right scale (it'll show up as 'scale 0.1') and set the Z-up for the axis, to have the right rotation too. (it will show up with Z -90 degrees)

When exporting make sure its set to Z-up as well.


As blender will remember these settings, you'll only have to set it right ones, and enjoy the results over and over again ;)
