This question already has an answer here:

I downloaded a Sims 3 3D model mesh to make custom clothes for the game Sims 3. but I noticed all the parts of the models body were separated including the eyes, head, and feet. So I tried to merge all the separated meshes together by pressing the join key but I got the error no mesh data to join. I don't why or how to solve this issue and its really makes things harder for me. If you know a solution to this problem, please let me know. I must be doing something wrong. Here is the blend file of the model: http://www.mediafire.com/file/jpajin1epe8bvko/myobjectfile.blend

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • $\begingroup$ I have just successfully joined all your character meshes into one, so I don't know what you are talking about. How are you joining them? What hot keys are you pressing? What objects have you selected? Which object is the active one? $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Oct 19 '17 at 1:55
  • $\begingroup$ I pressed on the join button in the edit section in the tools tab. $\endgroup$ – BerryHappy Oct 19 '17 at 1:57
  • $\begingroup$ I also tried to the hotkey ctrl+J to join but I still got the error. No mesh data to join. Can you explain to me how you did it exactly by showing a picture or video? $\endgroup$ – BerryHappy Oct 19 '17 at 2:00
  • $\begingroup$ Nevermind, I solved the issue. $\endgroup$ – BerryHappy Oct 19 '17 at 2:01
  • $\begingroup$ All I had to do was press shift to join the meshes together. $\endgroup$ – BerryHappy Oct 19 '17 at 2:01

You need an active object to join meshes together (a selected object that other meshes are being joined TO).

  • $\begingroup$ Please mark the question as solved with your solution then. $\endgroup$ – AdamTM Oct 23 '17 at 7:44
