Re: How to create a non planar path to be used for a sweep

Perhaps a helix would be better than a spiral?

Re: Macros: Addon Manager error and running macros

Use File Open dialog to open a macro from some arbitrary directory (or also drag/drop to FreeCAD title bar).

Re: FC019: problem exporting to Wavefront .obj format

There is a bug in the appimage version it looks like, related to the checkbox to automatically check for updates. A workaround is to make the changes via the parameter editor:

Tools menu -> Edit paramaeters. Then navigate to the section in the image below.

Re: How to best design a bent blade

One idea: Make a draft workbench clone of the path and move it up 10 mm in the z direction. Next make a part workbench 2d offset of each of the paths, the first (thicker) can be 2mm or whatever and the second (thinner one) can be .5mm or whatever. Now do a part workbench loft from path to path clone...

Re: I can't select the line

Sometimes zoom to fit will also enable selecting subelements that were previously not selectable.
