after resizing

resized object

I've tried turning off snap to pixel as suggested by someone in a similar thread but it didn't work. Does anyone know how I can resize this without messing up all the lines?

    A sure fire way to get rid of the issue with little effort is to make it into a symbol and scale the symbol. – Joonas Apr 10 '19 at 12:58

Before resizing, deselect all and double click the Scale Tool → uncheck Scale Strokes and Effects and Scale Corners:

Select your artwork and scale it.

Additionally, you can set this to be default in Illustrator's general settings.

Edit → Preferences → General or using the shortcut Ctrl+K or Cmd+K

    I would have thought those options would need to be ON, not off? – Wildcard Apr 12 '19 at 8:40
  • On or off depending what you want to get. – user120647 Apr 12 '19 at 8:50

Expand appearance and voilà you're done.
