Save object duplicate to separate file?

Postby arashi256 » Tue Nov 06, 2012 8:55 pm

Hi,

Just started with Blender after a couple of years trying out and battling with the "big" softwares. Screw dat, after one day with Blender I got further than I ever did with 3ds Max or Maya. Brilliant...and it runs on my beloved Linux!

Anyway...

I've duplicated an object in a scene and want to save that duplicate to a separate .blend file. Too much ambiguity in the query for Google, apparently. How can I do that? Thanks! I'm using v2.64.

There is no such options ("Selection only"), shame on Blender!

But there is a plugin available, closing this gap:

Tested and seems to work, even for OBJ etc.
I'm sitting, waiting, wishing, building Blender in superstition...

Go the other way. Create a new file; then Link/Append what you need.

I'll have to look up how to do that, but thanks :)
