Transfering blocks and/or cloning buildings

Postby Macías » Thu Nov 22, 2018 2:24 pm

Hello, I have a model with different blocks under the same building. I would like to transfer some of the blocks to generate a different building. If I use the option "transfer blocks", all blocks in the original building are transfered to the new building. How can I thansfer only some of the blocks? It is possible to clone the whole building? If yes, how would it be done?
Thank you very much in advance

You can use the Clone tool at Site level. ... e_Copy.htm

In summary the steps are:

1. Navigate to Site level
2. Mouse click on the Building
3. Select the Clone tool on toolbar.
4. click one point on the building and complete the operation.
