Edit/extract 3D coordinate after Excel XYZ upload

I'm doing some work with routed tubing at the moment using the Excel XYZ upload facility with auto-bend enabled and it works great. What I would like to know is if there is a way to edit an individual intersect point after the 3D line has been created? I've tried myself but can only movethe complete line, (all coordinates).


I would also like to know if it is possible to extract all XYZ intersect points back to excel or a table within Inventor so I could use the data with a CNC bending machine? Even displaying all coodrinates on the screen at once would be useful.


A working example would be as follows..., I will upload the customers XYZ data to create a 3D line, modifiy specific intersect points to simplify manufacturing and then extract the new co-ordinates to be used for prototyping purposes.


Thanks in advance..

OK, just found this plugin on Autodesk labs that would allow me to edit points in Excel but not it is released for Inv 2013 ! Do any Autodesk employees know if its planned to be released for 2013?
