I have a project with a UV sphere and I would like to copy only part of the sphere to a rounded surface:

Sphereto Surface

I have selected the vertices of the surface that interests me but I can't seem to find what is the next step to copy the selected surface to another project (if I do a simple Ctrl-C Ctrl-V then I copy the whole sphere).

Any help would be greatly appreciated,


  • $\begingroup$ it's not that clear what you mean by "another project"... is it another .blend file? $\endgroup$ – m.ardito Mar 23 '17 at 16:51

One method could be:

In Edit mode, with those faces selected, use SHFT + D to copy the faces followed by P to separate the copy into a new mesh object.

Now you can edit the new object ( or copy and paste to a new scene ).
