 ZW3D File Manager?

What is the best way to move, copy, and rename ZW3D files for managing multiple products that are similar in design, yet do not have a parametric relation? An example would be building a door frame with the intent of using it in multiple file locations with different width and heigh dimensions that do not affect the original model. I've worked with other CAD software that handles this by using its own file management system with built in features that copies and breaks the parametric link from the original model. Instead of sifting through a bunch of documentation for answers I figured I would just ask the question and hopefully get a good starting point. Thanks.

Is it what you want as below?

1. Go back to Object manager then use "Seperate object to file" to copy or move ZW3D files.

2. Go to 3d model enviroment then use"Copy- Geometry to part", it allow you to copy the whole part to a new file which also allow you whether keeping parameter.
