"Save selected as" in Blender?

I used to make use of this in Max, was useful sometimes. Is there a way to save the selected objects as a new .blend?

There is not an option but you could:

  1. Select the objects.
  2. Invert selection.
  3. Delete.
  4. Save.
  5. Undo delete.
    (You can make a “Save_selected.py” python script and make a shortcut, button…)


  1. Ctrl +c (copy the objects)
  2. New file
  3. Ctrl + v
  4. Save

@Poligonete That second suggestion is actually not bad, didn’t actually know you could copypasta.

@burnin I’ll have a go with that, thank you. Edit: Ah, hopefully it gets updated to 2.8 soon.
