Issues importing .blend files#

If a .blend file is not recognised by Unity, it likely is not correctly associated with Blender.

Resolution#

You must have Blender installed and set as the default application for .blend files.

In your file explorer or operating system, associate .blend files to open with Blender.

Notes#

It is almost always preferred to export to a natively-supported model format like FBX due to the following reasons:

  1. Blender is required to be installed on contributors' machines.
  2. The same Blender version that authored a file can be required to import it.
  3. The dependency on Blender makes it difficult to use build automation tooling.
