"Paste as New Reference" 3D Shape in Plant Layout Design (PLA) Role in 3DExperience R2018

Hello, 

I am seeking functionality to Paste a new 3D Shape data type as a "New Reference" instead of a "New Instance" within an Physical Product. The component is a wall divider, and currently I only have one 3D model of the component (of a fixed length - 2 Meters). The fastest workflow would be to Copy the Divider inside the extended product and Paste As New Reference inside of that same Physical Product type, rename the 3D Shape as "1.5 Meter Divider" and then dive into the CATIA part design role to make the change of length.

 

Does this functionality exist, or do I need to Duplicate the 3DShape using one of the Collaborative Lifecycle role, make the changes to the 3D shape and then insert it into the physical product? Please see attached image.

 

Thank you,

Brad Mello
