Attach multiple objects to one object by selection?
show user profile  TuPP3
I just made 40 object using Array, and now I need them to be same object. What I normally would do is to click attach button down and click object to be attached, but when i'm dealing with more than few objects I need more effective way to attach them, best would be attach selected. (Group > Attach seems to be grayed) Also I found that you can select object from the LIST, but it isn't very helpful when you have like Box29-140

I'm using 2009 Design.

When making the array, did you choose copy, or instance / reference ?

go to the utilities panel and add use the 'collapse' utility (if its not in the default list click the 'morwe' button to find it. then you select all the objects at once, hit collapse and it makes them all one single editable mesh object

when you go to Attach- List, you can Shift-select to go from 29-140!

Yes, I know I can select multiple items :D
But that names aren't giving any clues which object is it. Well, mrgrotey, thanks, that's is working just how it should be. One more thing learned:)
