I'm doing something wrong while trying to PARENT an object together.

I'm not sure I'm following the steps correctly.

Note the "dotted" string seems still attached to between the Icing & Donut still after "parenting".

Hope someone can solve this problem.

Thanks hugely and regards in advance.

    $\begingroup$ Hi. After reading your question, I'm still not sure what the problem is? You say you keep "making a mistake". What mistake? What isn't working with the parenting? Please add any additional details you can by using the edit link below the question. Thanks. $\endgroup$ May 26 '20 at 15:44

Apply transformations to both the objects Select the child object then the parent object, ctrl+p ("keep transform" - this maintains distance between objects)

  • $\begingroup$ I have selected keep transform. When I then grab G the object and move it away ts still detached (as in attached imame)? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Try to apply transformations before you parent them, apply (location, rotation, scale) by clicking ctrl +A, make sure scale is not uneven. $\endgroup$ Jun 1 '20 at 18:15
