I created this "astronauta", I created an armature and attached it with the "automatic height" function but the mesh doesn't move when I enter pose mode.



this is the file

Many bones don't have their "deform" option enalbled, and the armature is child of the mesh, while it should be the inverse.

To solve:

Select the armature and press Alt P (unparent, keep transformations).

In pose mode, select all bones, press the ALT button and while pressing Alt click on the deform bone option.

Then in object mode select the mesh (first), shift select the armature, press Ctrl P, with automatic weights.

  • $\begingroup$ The ALT trick works for a lot of functions when more than one object are selected! $\endgroup$ Mar 8, 2021 at 15:36
