Thanks for the tips!NormandC wrote: ↑Sun Dec 02, 2018 6:08 amIt is not implemented.
This is one of the reasons I much prefer the PartDesign workbench, all features can be edited once they are created.
There's a workaround: switch to the OpenSCAD Workbench, and use OpenSCAD ReplaceObject. You can create a custom toolbar and put it in it so you don't have to switch workbenches.
It is not greyed out for me. Are you sure you made the correct selection?
Thanks again taking the time! Didn't notice the tooltip, and now it is active, though still not works as you find.NormandC wrote: ↑Sun Dec 02, 2018 3:29 pmThe tooltip reads "Please select old, new, and parent object". The order is important.
So the right selection should be
1. Helix001 ("old" or existing element to replace)
2. Helix (new element to replace the old)
3. Sweep (parent)
And the button is active - but it does not work. I think this because "Helix001" is outside of the Sweep in the tree, therefore the tool does not consider it as a child of Sweep.
Since you are currently playing with Curve workbench, there is a similar tool there.paullee wrote: ↑Sun Dec 02, 2018 3:56 pmThanks again taking the time! Didn't notice the tooltip, and now it is active, though still not works as you find.
And tried replace the spine with python, seem still it does not want to recompute()
Maybe it is Part Sweep inherent problem - the Spine is not 'parametric'?
paullee, are you willing to register a feature request on the tracker? As we've seen here, this would be useful. If you do, please link to this forum topic. Thanks.
No problem, when I am back to my pc.

- select the sweep object
- activate sublink editor
- a widget appears
- when you push the "View" button, you see the current sweep path (optional, just to see the current setting)
- select the edges of the new sweep path and press "Set", then "Quit"
