Hi. I seem to have got myself a little stuck with a large project.
I’ve recreated a large boarding school from pictures with quite a few buildings, swimming pool, tennis courts, football fields, large main entrance and numerous other things. Unfortunately the whole blender model has got that large everything is now slowing down, screen freezes or blender crashes so I thought I’d copy each building and paste it into its own blender file so I can work on them individually and then when all good copy and paste that back into the main blender file. No problems with the copy and paste but I realised that when I pasted the building into its new individual file I lose all the collection folders and everything is just dumped together.
I’ve spend hours creating collections with their own subfolders so I can access a particular object quickly such as window frames, drainpipes, roof areas, doors etc. and it’s pretty grim seeing all that lost and everything all mixed up during the copy and paste.
Is there any way I can make an exact copy in Blender 2.93.4 ?
Thanks for your time,
