Create New From Behavior: Data Sheet

Accessing this behavior This behavior can be accessed by clicking the Create New From behavior icon () in the Doc Based Behaviors toolbar.
Describing this behavior This behavior enables you to perform a New from operation. It enables you to create a document whose content is the same as an existing document. For more information about the New From command, see CATIA Infrastructure User's Guide.

For all documents types, you can:

  • Leave the path unset. In this case, the behavior can operate and opens a File Open dialog box enabling you to select a file
  • Specify the path
  • Specify the name of the document: In this case, the system uses the directory indicated by the CATGraphicPath.
More information Note that the output feature of this behavior is a document corresponding to the document indicated in the File path of the Definition tab.

Using this behavior I have a manikin that can be the driver or the passenger (the positioning is different for the driver and the passenger). I use the New From behavior and I instantiate the result of this behavior.
