Creo Illustrate re-use figures or animations

Hi there!

Can I re-use in some way an illustration I already created in another illustration?

To be more precise:

Let's say I have a sub-assembly like an electrical cabinet and I created an illustration for it (e.g. the cabinet's door opens) and saved it as c3di file.

Now I want to illustrate a main assembly (like a switch gear) where that electrical cabinet is assembled. Therefore I create a new c3di file, import the model of the main assembly. So far, so good.

Now the question is how to 'import' the illustration of the cabinet's door opening into the main assembly illustration?

 

Of course one can argue that you can better start creating your illustration with the complete main assembly  from the very begin. Background of my question is that the sub-assembly is assembled in other main assemblies as well (not just only one) and of course I do not want to recreate the same 'cabinet's door opens' illustration again and again.
