Sorry, no pictures this time! I did the following to create a parent-child link between two objects in Blender:
- First select the object that will be the child
- Second, hold down the [Shift] key, and select the object that will be the parent
- Click in the 3D window, press [Ctrl] + [P] then select “Object”.
The order is important!
