You will want to leverage LookML dashboards to do this:

1. Convert the dashboard to a LookML dashboard. 
2. Each LookML dashboard needs to be included in a model. So, make a new model that is identical to your existing model, but has a different connection.
3. Reference this lookml dashboard in your new model.
4. Convert the LookML dashboard back to a UDD 
5. Delete the LookML dashboard
