In the Modify Features pane, Duplicate Vertical copies multipatch and z-enabled features vertically, constrained to the z-axis of your data. You specify the vertical distance you want to maintain between each duplicate feature and how many features you want to create.
In scenes, you can enable a z-handle and drag a preview of the feature to set the distance with the pointer. As an alternative to using the pane, you can right-click and use the context menu in a scene to create single features at a specified offset.
