I have to create a pipe connection as a flexible tube in ASY mode connecting two different located pipes, and I wanted to use Sweep feature, but it is dimmed.
How to ctrate a flexi tube using ASY mode ?
Is there a chance to use 3D sketch to draw a path ?
Thank you for any response,

In order for the sweep command to be enabled, you must mark the assembly as a weldment. This is done on the Tools tab of the ribbon. In the 'Model' section, click the Weldment button and check the 'Mark this assembly as a weldment' button on the Weldment Assembly dialog. This probably isn't what you are wanting for your case though. The sweep command in Assembly was intended for weld beads I believe.
To achieve what you are wanting to do, I would use the XpresRoute environment and use the Tube command to create your tube. You can use a 3D sketch as the path to create the tube.
I'm not sure how helpful this is but I used keypoint curve and a fixed length to create this hose in a test assembly. I wanted to try and drive it with a variable motor (see video). To fix the hose at either end I had to project the geometry through to my part so it would adapt as the ends moved. Hopefully helps you a bit.
