Pipe Slope

Hi,

Can someone tell me how to change the slope of a pipe already drawn ?

Looking at previous massages (up to 2007) I can see that the question was asked and no answer.

Perhaps Autodesk people will answer?

Thanks

I confirm what kbrown said, it needs to be redrawn because all attached fittings now need to adjust for that slope angle and do not adjust automatically.

 

I do believe that a means to change the slope automatically would be very helpful to have in the program, and feel that you raise a very good case for enhancing the product. 

 

If you would take the time to go here:

The only way to change the slope of a pipe already drawn is the change the start or end elevation of the pipe on the properties palette.  This can be quite cumbersome if you need to change several pipes and fittings in a run.  Your best bet is to delete and redraw.

I was afraid of that answer. I do not understand. This is a major issue during design process.
