Such tools are on my wishlist. I told this many times here in the forum, but we need someone to program it.

I know, but things can be implemented in different ways. Some ways can be quite easy for developers to do but also quite useless for the different users, some ways can require more work from the developers but can also be quite useless for the different users and as you probably know from my arguments on other tools I strongly dislike this and I am always searching and trying to find good and proper ways to do things. Werner can probably implement some of this ideas with closed eyes, but it can be very helpful for him and other developers if we can have a good and quite exact specification on how it should be done and agree on it.
1. I have added the nice Path Loop Edge to my WB (thanks to @sliptonic for this nice tool)freecad-heini-1 wrote: ↑Sun Jul 08, 2018 7:23 amBy 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:

2. Edge and Face can be copied and translated by an offset. The offset can be assigned in the middle text box. Over it to get the tooltipfreecad-heini-1 wrote: ↑Sun Aug 05, 2018 8:58 amHi Maurice,
I explored some defeaturing-wb.
Great to have a edge copy tool. But it's not parametric. Please check if it's possible to create it parametric.
What about edge offset. Please can you explain how to use.
Thank you so much for your creat work.
I upgraded the defeaturing workbench tried this tool, but it does not work. If I change into the path workbench, it work without problem.
I copied faces, changed a sketch from an extrusion, but the copied faces are not parametric. Same with edges.
my bad, please update the tools again... now it should be finefreecad-heini-1 wrote: ↑Sun Aug 05, 2018 2:53 pmI upgraded the defeaturing workbench tried this tool, but it does not work. If I change into the path workbench, it work without problem.
Offset is not parametric ATM, I will have a look at later on.freecad-heini-1 wrote: ↑Sun Aug 05, 2018 2:53 pmI copied faces, changed a sketch from an extrusion, but the copied faces are not parametric. Same with edges.

I tried to use PeerTube, not bad for the first test.
The video is in German language.
And there is now a stand-alone command for box selection of faces (see Part menu). This is a WIP and the long-term goal is marry its functionalities with the box selection of the core system (see Edit menu).
