Blender 2.8 solidify modifier problem

So, I´ve modeled this and wanted to use solidify modifier but its not doing what it suppose to do. Left object its with modifier. Right is copied and made it bigger. Why it isn´t looking similar to the right and instead making this abomination

did you Ctrl-A the object before adding solidify modifier ?

happy bl

wow. didn´t expect that to help. thanks. :slight_smile:
