First post here so please excuse me if this is a common question, I tried looking at 5-6 other posts I thought could help me but they were all about different aspects of Blender. I have been kind of thrown in at the deep end and have a five week deadline to develop a reasonable grasp of some of the basics.
Essentially, I need to import readily-available items into Blender and then experiment with Python code to move them around. I downloaded a .blend file for a leather couch and I wanted to move it around as one unit but every time I tried to click it and move it, new places were selected and I was pulling the back of it one direction, a cushion to the left and a leg of the sofa to the right.
What I’d really like help with, and I don’t mean a big explanation, even just the name of a command or a menu item to give me at least some hint at the right direction. I would like to import a .blend file item (i.e. like a piece of furniture) and have Blender treat it as one object, then I look in the info window and replicate Python commands based on current cursor position and stuff like that.
Like I said, I’m not looking for an in-depth explanation (though one would be greatly appreciated) but even just a spin in the right direction would be fantastic.
