I'm creating side skirts for a truck and I am duplicating the frames I want. The problem is it's making the duplicated object into another object. How do I put it into the same one?

how do I make one file for each model

  • $\begingroup$ I'm not sure what you are asking. Do you want to make those into one object? (Ctrl+J) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Try selecting them both (selecting model6.10 last) and pressing Ctrl+J $\endgroup$

You can join objects by selecting them (ShiftRMB) and pressing CtrlJ in the 3D view while on Object mode.

The selected object(s) will be joined to the active object.

The active object the one with the yellow outline, usually the last object selected.

enter image description here

you can move an object to another layer by: object mode + m + select the intended layer

    $\begingroup$ @user2004 seems to mean objects, not layers. If I understood their question correctly, they want to join the objects, nothing to do with layers. $\endgroup$ Jan 3, 2014 at 23:00
