You can copy modifiers from one object to other objects with CtrlL> Make links > Modifiers, or the Copy attributes addon.

However, is it possible to apply modifiers to many objects at once?

You can select all of the object you wish to apply the modifiers to, then press AltC> convert to mesh:

Note:

  • Some modifiers have different values for View and Render.

  • This will apply the View settings.

  • $\begingroup$ This doesn't work if the modifier isn't being displayed in View. Next question... how do you set all modifiers to display in view at once? $\endgroup$ – jozxyqk Jul 22 '14 at 0:19
  • $\begingroup$ How about for complex modifier stacks? i.e. several array modifiers, curve modifier, lattice modifier, etc. and Multiuser data $\endgroup$ – VRM Oct 14 '15 at 20:39

Convert To

One very easy way to do this is to use the Convert To command:

enter image description here

  • If you have curve objects that need to stay curves, then use Convert to Curve
    ALTC -> Convert to -> Curve from Mesh/Text

  • If you have mesh objects that need to stay meshes, then use Convert to Mesh
    ALTC -> Convert to -> Mesh from Curve/Meta/Surf/Text

This will automatically apply all modifiers at once:

Blender 2.8x and 2.9x comes with the add-on "Modifier Tools".

The add-on ads four buttons in the top area of the Modifier tab and the entry "Apply All Modifiers" in the menu under "Object" - "Apply".

Menu Entry and Button Locations

In addition to applying and deleting the entire modifier stack, you can also disable it in the Viewport (Viewport Vis) and collapse/expand all modifiers with the press of one button (Toggle Stack).

  • $\begingroup$ Yes. But this is not working for multiple objects at once. Additional info: The default shortcut Alt+C isn't working in version up from 2.8. $\endgroup$ – Christoph Werner Mar 26 at 9:37

    $\begingroup$ @ChristophWerner - It does in fact work on multiple objects at once. I just tried it in one of my projects. Select all objects you want to apply modifiers to, then select "Apply All" - done. $\endgroup$ – metaphor_set Apr 8 at 4:57
  • $\begingroup$ You're are right. It was my fault. I expected it works for the selected object stack only. Thank you! $\endgroup$ – Christoph Werner Apr 11 at 12:26
