Experimenting with the new MORPH tool, i've noted the 'TUBE' function to extrude a face along a path, however it seems to require selecting face and then the subsequent nodes of the path sequentially and then in straight segments.

Is would be very useful to define the path in space in advance and then extrude face along that path, say by using the magic wand tool.

agree. formerly a Sweep tool. What Archicad misses now are a few basilar nurbs commands. Shell a morph is even more important than that

I've just spend an hour drafting a swept profile for a 'bell' shaped facade (classic dutch wooden style). Now I want to move a node 50 mm and can't figure out how to change the path after completing the morph. Having to painstakingly click the 30 nodes of the path again (not to mention the frustration of trying to get the arcsegments correct). This sort of defeats the purpose of the tool.

I've gone back to using the profiler addon and using SEO additions for when the sweep goes around a bend into another plane.

I hope this gets fixed with ArchiCAD 17.
