What is Backup Object?
Backup Object is a workflow addon for easily creating backups of object(s) with a click of a button. No need to worry about messing up the mesh or object settings of your object when you can go back to your previous backups.

Object backups are neatly organized into their own separate collections to easily reference. Automatically hidden from the viewport and rendering to not clutter the viewport.

Select 1 or more Objects, and click the "Backup Object" button.
