Hey all, new forum member here. I have tinkered with Blender in the past, but I am more motivated recently to learn Blender in more depth. And of course, I have tons of questions cropping up along the way. My first one is: When dealing with objects, what are the defining differences between joining objects, parenting objects, and grouping objects?
What I think I know so far:
When joining objects, each object is merged into a single mesh where the joined objects can be transformed and edited as one.
When parenting objects, the child inherits transformations of the parent.
I don’t know what grouping does.
I also see that there is linking in Blender. But maybe that is a more advanced topic of no real concern to me at the moment.
Thanks in advance for helpful replies.
