I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.
This is really useful and something I will have to try if it's more memory efficient than using Alt+D to duplicate. A shame there's 3 minutes of verbiage before the useful information starts ;-)
interesting Tip :P. cheers

I want something like this for Armour and helmet variations in a character
