Hi,
I have made a 3D Drainage Tube in GDL with this possibilities:
1. Start point enables stretching the tube on the axis line
2. End point enables free stretching in ANY direction.

After use of point "2", Start point lose the "Move node" icon on the toolbar.
Why? I will apreciate any help.

If your start and ens points are directly connected to A, then you dont need movable hotspots.
But, it's hard to sak whats wrong without reading the code.

I can always use "A....dimension 1" field on the Info Box to change the lenght of the tube.
With this hotspot (diamond) on the end point I can Rotate and Stretch the tube within 1 operation; and then the field "A" show the right lenght. But after that the "Move node" icon for stretching the start point of the tube disapears!

If I use "Rotate" icon on the start point and rotate the tube, after that the "Move node" icon is still available!

Is this problem connected to the coordinate system?

Andro,

Difficult to answer your question without a script.
If it is just a hotspot scripting problem, take a look at the attached object.
May be this can help.
