Duplicating a group


If I select a group, all objects inside are duplicate and keeped inside this group.

How can I dupicate a group where new objects stay inside a new group? Because it´s very hard to remove one by one object from the group and then grouped the new copies…

I´m using Blender 2.71.


Ctrl+Alt+G to remove from group
Ctrl+G to add to new group
(these are under the Object / group menu)

These apply to all selected objects so you don’t need to do each object individually

Thanks, Richard. I guess this is the best option.

  1. Select all objects you want to group.
  2. Create a group (Ctrl+G) and give it a name in the F6 panel.
  3. Move the (still selected) objects to an unused layer (M)
  4. Go back to your “working” layer
  5. Shift+A to add a new object. Go to the bottom of the Add menu and choose “Group Instance”
  6. Select the group you want to copy. This creates a non-editable duplicate of the group.
