Default Shortcut: Ctrl + Shift + I

Menu Path: Create > De-instantiate Instance


The De-instantiate Instance command allows you turn an instance of an object into a regular, editable object. An instance of an object is a copy that updates automatically with every edit made to the source object, and is not editable in vertex, edge, or face modes itself. A de-instantiated instance no longer has any connection to its source object.


  • See also the Create Instance command to learn more about instances.
  • De-instantiate Instance only works in object selection mode with one or more instances selected. (See Selection Mode.)
