I'd like to scale down the imported models to their real proportions (1/1000), so I can place the models in non-Lego scenes I made in Blender.
Also I'd like to make some animations using the Rigid Body. Therefore it's necessary to scale down and apply the transformation. I know how to convert the elements to single user objects, so I can apply this.
I found the bevel-node in your material and divided the scale by 1000, so the bevel should be correct again. As far as I can see the result looks oke, is there something I forget?
By the way, for what reason you set the scale to meters, instead of milimeters?

Units in Blender are still messy and it is always complicated to work in mm (viewport, dof, etc) but 1 blender unit = 1mm in everything I do for Blender.

The bevel shader is not the only thing to scale and it also depends on other parameters like parenting. That is why I do not recommend to scale up or down.

I am trying to import a model into blender as a .zmbx but it is showing the model to be 240 meters tall, to pull back the camera to try and focus on something this big is impossible. I have moved the camera but to no avail. The model has been imported into meters and not millimetres. How do I fix this problem if I cannot scale the model without causing problems?
