Instance Broken after Connecting Mesh

Recommended Posts

I have problem with instances. 

I have an mesh with many instances, but I want to replace the mesh. Actually just a few polygons of the mesh.

So I thought it should work like that: Select my referenced mesh, select the mesh with the new polygons then command connect delete. But then all my instances are broken.

Now I could of course select all instances and reroute them. But is there another way? I mean I can't do that each time I update my reference mesh.

 

PS: I use copy&paste polygon script in R19 before, but in R20 I have no such function.

I don't think there is another way.

But is it that much hassle to update the instances ? You can at least select them all, and relink them all in one go...

If you place your primary object under a Null and reference that instead, you can throw any new object into the null then connect/delete and instances will stay correct.
