Blender add-on: Save Selected

“Save Selected” – Blender 3D add-on that allows saving selected objects in the scene into a separate *.blend file.

This add-on can be useful for quickly creating sets of separate files with assets from complex scenes.

Add-on functionality

To save the necessary objects into a separate *.blend file, just select them, and in the main menu choose “File – Export – Save Selected”. And specify the location of the file to save.

The selected objects will be saved to the specified file.

Hi Nikita,
would it be possible to save only the selected objects to a blank scene and not in the startup file ?
