MEP Modeler - edit the slope of a piping

alemanda
Beginner
Hi all!
I recently bought the MEP Modeler.

I tried to draw a pipe for waste water with a slope of 1% and I was able to do it.
The question is: how to change the slope of the whole pipe route I've drawn before in order to match the given exit discharge height?
Is it possible?

I don't know the answer, I have not worked with MEP Modeler enough to know the answer.
Here is an MEP Modeler playlist on YouTube, hopefully one of the clips will contain the answer:

Thanks Laszlo,
Plan route Editing seems to be very easy.
While I understood how to draw the pipe with a slope, I didn't find the way to change slope of piping at once. Rather it seems that I should change the slope piece by piece ...
Does Anyone else have a suggestion?

I want to say also that the concept behind the MEP modeler would allow archicad to be also a very powerful structural modeler ... smart connection between parts could be extended to structural connection

I have received the info from GRAPHISOFT that after placement, you can edit the sloping of individual elements only, but not the whole network of elements.

Thank you Laszlo.
That's a pity.
Hope they will implement such as pipe editing option in the next version.

I've just started modelling a small house, this was almost the first issue I encountered - adjusting inclination for multiple elements is much needed. Probably it would be contextual: so the selected elements are affected only, the elevation change should be also indicated as % (or degrees).
