Part ElementCopy produces a non-parametric copy of a sub-element of a particular object, that is, of a vertex, edge, or face.
To produce complete non-parametric copies of the objects use Simple Copy, Transformed Copy, or RefineShape
- Select a vertex, edge, or face of an object for which you wish to make a copy.
- Go to the menu Part → Create a copy → Create shape element copy.
The copy has a simple DataPlacement property like any other Part Feature.
The copy has simple view properties like any other Part Feature.
