How to append an object to an exact position blender 2.83.9
Objects are added at the location of the 3D cursor. So… put the cursor at the exact position first, and then add the object?
EDIT: the above is wrong, question was about appending from another file, not adding an object.
Yes that always a worked for me but somehow the objects are added to the center does not matter where I place the cursor.
In a specific file or in any file?
Any file even a new one.
Something has changed for blender 2.83.9
Isn’t there a setting for this in the append dialogue next to “load ui”?
Wait… brain failure. Append as in “File->Append” as @Lumpengnom observed?
Yes file -append. There is no option in the append ui to select the cursor to appeend to it always is appning to the center of the 3d viewport.
Or to the coordinates the object had in the original file to be precise.
Thats not to the cursor position .
Can not append the object to a new position
With 2.79b I alway could with the cursor.
Err, no. File > Append doesn’t put the object to cursor, it puts it to whatever position it is in the original file, as @StrayBillie says . In 2.79 too. To put it to cursor you’ll just need to select it and snap it to cursor.
Yes your right. I also thought it could be done by the cursor position.
But i am mistaken.
