    Move / Copy 3D Objects from one file to another in PS CC 2018

    MdesignAZ Level 1

      Greetings,

       

      I would like to move / copy a 3D object from one file to another and can't for the life of me figure out how to do it. I'll try to explain as best I can, I don't think I know the correct terminology but here goes:

       

      File A is a .psd file, with many objects in a 3D scene. I want to move one of those objects to another file, where I am building another 3D scene.

      I have tried dragging layer group, but it won't let me. (gives circle / slash symbol.)

      I've tried  [cmd] dragging the object, but it brings every object, in every layer into the new scene.

      I've tried copy / paste, but it brings every object, in every layer into the new scene.

      I've tried Export Layer, but it brings every object, in every layer into the new file.

       

      Any thoughts?

      In the screen grabs, the second image shows files A & B side-by-side.

      This is maddening, I'm sure it is a simple process. (yes, I am new to the 3D tools in PS, but not to PS.)

      Thanks everyone.
