Please Help


I’m new to Blender but I’ve been modeling a speed boat. I was making a little LCD screen for a GPS to go on the boat, and I created a cylinder. But when I zoomed out, the boat was an object, and the cylinder was an edit object. I couldn’t edit the boat, only the new cylinder. I had to start again from scratch.

If you understand what happened, please help.


Be careful what mode you are in object vs edit (tab key). You created your cylinder while in object mode so it’s a separate object. You should have created it when your boat mesh was in edit mode so it would be part of that mesh.

No need to start over -you can easily join this object with your boat mesh. Select both in object mode and Ctrl-J

Okay, thank you.
