enter image description here

I have the following problem. at the beginning, i duplicated the "wheelbox" via duplicate link. first all was ok. but now i am coming to the point where i want to work on the inner/outer part of the object. but unfortunately, i cannot select Inner / outer wall. when i select (like u see here in the image) the outside wall of the right box it select also the inner wall of the left box. how can i separate this link?

Internally, when you create a linked duplicate, blender does not actually duplicate the object, but it has another reference to it, thus, when you edit the objects, you are editing all linked duplicates the same way. You need to break the link between the two if you want to edit those elements separately.

Since I am pretty bad at explaining these sort of things without demonstrating, here are two helpful links about duplicates and linked duplicates.

I would advise you to look at these two links How to unlink a linked-duplicate? and Duplication -- Blender manual.

  • $\begingroup$ @Flaka I am pretty bad at explaining this sort of thing, sorry. I would advise you to look at these two links How to unlink a linked-duplicate? and Duplication -- Blender manual. Additionally, Robin Betts makes a good suggestion. Use the mirror modifier. I have added these links to my original answer. $\endgroup$ – user173724 Feb 17 at 22:22
