Problems with Rigify!

Hi there!

I've been trying to apply Rigify to my model.
When I Set parent with automatic weights this alert appeared:

If it's hard to see, it says: "Bone Heat Weighting: failed to find solution for one or more bones."
What doues it mean and how can I fix it?

Thank you in advance!


  • Try trouble shooting the following: Here's some ideas

    Are the rig and mesh aligned on the axis properly?

    Have you applied scale and rotation on everything you're weighting?

    Did you make sure to keep the x - axis mirror option on when rigging? The weight painting gets wonky when things are less symmetrical.

    Have you removed double vertices, checked your mesh for bits that don't aren't connected, and recalculated normals?

    Is your mesh or armature too large? Sometimes scaling it down can help.

  • also check for location, rotation and scale being applied...
  • Is Rigify even worked on anymore? Feels like it gets more and more broken with each new version of Blender.

    Auto-Rig is the real good stuff: https://blendermarket.com/products/auto-rig-pro
