About Copy and Publish Geometry Features
Copy Geometry and Publish Geometry features are top-down design tools to associatively communicate design criteria. With these tools you can propagate a large amount of information by copying reference geometry from model to model.
For large designs, each design group can create skeleton models in their subassemblies with Copy Geometry features that reference the top-level product skeleton. No access to top-level assembly is necessary. Because each group's skeleton encompasses copied references, everyone works with the same design criteria, which remains associative.
