When creating a tabular model, I might use the same DWH view twice. E.g. when creation a supply chain model, there should be a 'shipping location' and a 'receiving location' with both dimensions built on the same DWH view 'locations'. Once one of both dimensions is built in a tabular model, it would save time when one could just copy/paste the dimension and just change the name (besides the name, both dimensions are identical).
Clone dimensions within and between semantic models
