array modifier on an empty

Hi all.

I need to make an array of panels so i modeled the panels, saved the file and linked in another blend file. now i cant do the array modifier. is there a way to do it without getting too much geometry?

Instead of linking have you tried to append the data? I think all you will need is the mesh, unless you had a material in there as well that you want to use. You can also copy and paste if you have both files open, but I don’t usually do this, so I’m not sure if it works still.
