that's my first question here in blender stackexchange, so I'll try to be specific;

I have modelled a city with more than 30 objects, but my problem is that Blender not detects each mesh as object. I mean, when I select each "object", in the upper menu where displays the project info (verts, faces, ) says 0/2 objects. I don't know why shows me 0/2 objects instead of 0/30 objects. I've found 2 buildings that Blender detects as objects, but the rest of the models doesn't recognise them as objects.

How can I "set" the other models as "blender objects"? I need for exporting them to 3ds files, and Blender won't export anything if is not an object.


Here shows 0/2 objects when I have selected one Here detects the only 2 objects from the scene

(I restored a previous file where it detects 4 objects instead 2) I have each kind of building in separate layers, but the object's number doesn't change if I change the layer where I'm working


  • $\begingroup$ I think all the object are on different layers. The below 2 are in same layer so they show 2/2 $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @atek I added screenshot to layers and outline. Yes, I have objects in different layers, but in other layers won't show 0/X objects, the object's number won't change. $\endgroup$ Nov 11, 2017 at 13:09

Select one of the object and click this button

Use the scene's active camera and layer in this view rather than local layer.

It has link in one scene into other scene
