I'm trying to lern python scripting inside freecad. I've been doing all examples from the wiki page Topological Data Scripting http://freecadweb.org/wiki/index.php?ti ... _scripting Amazing Stuff, it really makes fun because this is something my CAD at work ist not able to do at all.
Two things I was not able to do.
I would like to highligt one or more parts using python, just as I would klick these parts using the mouse. The whole part gets green.
I would like to access parts I've been created using the GUI and the mouse. I know the name (label) of them. I've found a script to find all names of the part objects of a freecad document but I'm not able te access them. I can not even calculate a volume of a simple box if the box was created using the gui and mouse.
thanks for any help, bernd
