In this lesson, learn how to create a duplicate component from an existing part in your catalog.
- If you need to create a new part to your catalog,…sometimes it's best to create a duplicate…of an existing part, and make the modifications…to the copy.…Just remember, it's good practice not to make changes…to your master catalogs.…So here's how you would create a component…that has the same physical properties as the original…but has a different description.…So let's navigate to our desktop,…so open catalog, desktop, exercise files,…and we're going to go all three or four,…create a duplicate component,…and select the pipings and fittings catalog.…
