Someone recently asked on the 12d Model Forum how to duplicate a model and also duplicate any model attributes. I’d previously had the same problem and, frustratingly, none of the built-in options in 12d Model will copy the attributes. At least not in one move. There are workarounds with chains and the Attribute Manipulator, but figured it was such an obvious and easy fix that I’d write a 12d Model app. So, here it is.

Source code of Model Duplicate with Attributes application for 12d Model. Dependencies: set_ups.h – Available in your 12d Model install folder standard_library.h – Available on the 12d Forum here: https://forums.12dmodel.com/viewtopic.php?t=1196 !! NOTE !!

Compiled 12d Model application (aka macro) simply duplicates a given model to a new model with an option to also copy model attributes. Options in 12d Model currently (V14C2j) allow for duplicating of models, but none support also copying over the model attributes. The model attributes can be used for storing various meta-data and user-defined information, but are also used extensively by the Three Waters tools in 12d Model, particularly the stormwater drainage analysis.
