How to make relative paths for cache folder in Blender

Many blend-files reference external images or other linked blend-files. A path tells Blender where to look for these files. If the external files are moved, the blend-file that references them will not look right.

When you specify one of these external files, the default option is to make the path relative. Blender stores a partial path evaluated relative to the directory location of the referencing blend-file. This choice helps when you need to reorganize folders or move your files.

With a relative path, you can move the blend-file to a new location provided the externally linked files are moved along with it.

In order to make relative paths in Blender, please follow these following steps:

  1. Step 1: Select your simulation domain
  1. Step 2: Click “Physical Properties Tab” -> “Cache” -> Enter “//[the name of your cache folder]”
