Description[edit]

The "cp" command makes a duplicate of an object (shape or combination). If from_object is a shape, then it is simply copied to a new shape named to_object. If from_object is a combination, then a new combination is created that contains exactly the same members, transformation matrices, etc, and it is named to_object.


Example(s)[edit]

mged> cp prim1 prim2
Make a duplicate of combination prim1 and call it prim.
mged> cp comb1 comb2
Make a duplicate of combination comb1 and call it comb2. Note that this action does not duplicate the members of comb1, just comb1 itself.
