Is there a way to replace one object position to another object position? and automatically match the scale? Any sort of addon or there is a way to do it? For example, I have a basic chair obj in the scene, however I downloaded a better chair, so I import the obj to the scene, is there a way I can just replace the downloaded chair obj to the basic obj with matching the scale and position?

  • $\begingroup$ There is a possibility to override, discussed i.a. on Blender artists, but I know nothing about actual overwriting Guess it's not possible. $\endgroup$ – Lukasz-40sth Dec 2 at 19:17

If the objects are all of the same type (mesh, curve, empty, etc) you can use the make links menu.

Select all objects you want to replace, then Shift-Select the "master object" you want to replace with making sure it remains as Active Object.

Then press Ctrl + L Make links > Object Data.

You can also access it from the Object > Make Links > Object Data menu in the 3DView header.

If objects are empties with duplicated collections use the Instance Collection option instead.

Another solution would be to copy Location and Scale values.
Assuming your objects have similar the proportions.

First, select your target object.
Second, select your source object.
Then click right mouse button and Copy all to selected.
