Smart Duplication

by pragma37 in Scripts and Addons

Smart Duplication speeds up multi-object modifier based workflows.


  • The Smart Duplication operator (Ctrl+D) duplicates selected objects, (optionally their children) and the modifiers that refer to them.
  • The Smart Delete operator (Ctrl+X) deletes selected objects, (optionally their children) and the modifiers that refer to them.
  • The Select References operator selects objects referenced in modifiers by the current selection or the ones referencing the current selection in their modifiers.
  • Smart Duplication supports every modifier type that references other objects.
