How to Import ONLY the Mesh

I’d just like to know if there’s a way to import ONLY a mesh. I just want a simple quad (as seems most people), so I don’t want all the extra gunk (Default Take, Avatar, etc). I’m importing with Blender, though I don’t think that’d be important. I AM importing the .blend file directly, and that may be important.

TL;DR: How do I import only a mesh sans extra gunk?

Unity will automatically attempt to set up a model as if it were ready to animate. To avoid the creation of an avatar and default animation take do the following.

  1. Import model into Unity
  2. Select the model in the Project view
  3. Go to the Rig tab in the inspector and change “Animation Type” to “None”
  4. Apply Import settings

After that your model will not have any avatar or animation information attached to it.
