thank you for your kind words, but I just discovered some interesting Open Cascade primitives for Shape Healing:

Probably there is little audience in FC for Shape repairing... most users just create the models from scratch...
I will have a look at path-workbench, but I'm very weak in Coin coding and I suspect this is much related...freecad-heini-1 wrote: ↑Sun Jul 08, 2018 7:23 amLooking for a new mission?
A good face selecting tool is missing, from my point of view.
First a rectangel selecting tool that select the faces in front and not behind.
In Freecad exists something similar (the box select tool) to color single faces.
And then a selecting tool with inner and border faces. Imagine you have a part with many faces inside, lets say 138 faces, and outside is a border with just 12 faces.
In Creo you select the shift key to start this operation and first select one inner face, then you unselect the shift key, you press the shift key again and hold it, then you start to select the 12 outer faces. Unselect the shift key and voila all inner faces are selected for a copy or something else.
An easy example a box with one face thickness. Inside you have 5 faces, the border is just one face.
In Creo this tool works parametric. That means if you change the order in the model tree and add faces inside, the selecting tool will add them. It's explained on page 12 and 13 in the quick reference card:

By the way a edge chain / set selecting tool is also missing. The path-workbench has such a tool, but it's not working in other workbenches, I don't know why:
