i was working with SP3D today, and boy! how i miss those grips of A-P3D.
Continuation and rotation grips is awesome, too bad SP3D doesnt have these.

There is one that SP3D has, not grip but its The FLIP button command.
its very usefull especially for flipping Valve Levers, Actuators and flow direction (for check valve) and
for tee's SP3d use rotate by angle command

I hope A-P3D team will consider to change how does the Flip Grips works. for now it works just the same as the rotate grip.
Flip grip just make the rotate grip command faster, by saving us the 180 deg input for rotation angle.
i can always key in 180, or with ortho's help, i can simply pull my cursor up, down, left or right for a quick two 90 deg rotation.

but for the the valve flow direction, levers and actuators? delete and replace is the only solution.
FLIP GRIP, i think will be more usefull for VALVES.
