Convert collection instance to mesh?

I’m using collection instances for things like bolts, floaters, windows, etc. I’m trying to convert them to a mesh so I can join them into a single, editable mesh when completed.

Based on research, I suspect this is a no.

Any help is appreciated :slight_smile:

Select your Collection Instance and click on Object -> Apply -> Make Instances Real. The Collection will then be dismantled and the meshes become editable. If they were instances before, they are still instances after doing this. If you want to make them unique, so they aren’t instances anymore, click on Object -> Relations -> Make Single User -> Object & Data -> Selected Objects.
