Copying mesh items to another document

To run this script, have two open documents. One document should contain at least one mesh item, the other document can be empty. Make the empty document the frontmost before running the script.

// Copies all mesh items from one document to a new document
if (app.documents.length > 0) {
  var srcDoc = documents[0];
  var locationOffset = 0;
  var targetDoc = documents.add();
  for (var i = 0; i < srcDoc.meshItems.length; i++) {
    var srcItem = srcDoc.meshItems[i];
    var dupItem = srcDoc.meshItems[i].duplicate(targetDoc, ElementPlacement.PLACEATEND);

    // offset the copied items' position on the y axis
    dupItem.position = Array(100, 50 + locationOffset);
    locationOffset += 50;
  }
}
