Hi Jonathan, as i progress with learning im always trying to understand why u do something, as it stands now im very pleased with ur explanations and such and they're helping a lot. But one thing i still didn't understand: What exactly happens if u scale towards zero on one axis, i see the result: straightening out the vertices or making sure that they line up with each other. But how does that exactly work? Thats really the only thing thats bothers me right now :D

    Hey kkhemara, so sorry for missing this question earlier. 

    Scaling to zero while constraining to a specific axis will effectively flatten the selection in the given direction.

    For example, if you have a rough surface that you want to make perfect flat then selecting all of the geometry and pressing S > Z > 0 would flatten it along the Z axis.
