Angle a Symbol?

Hi all,

 

I have a PCV pipe symbol that I’ve imported from the 3D Warehouse. What I would like to do within Softplan is to have this symbol angle down towards the storm water pit.  See attached image.

What is the best way to go about this?

 

All help is appreciated.

 

Cheers

Peter

No can do

Unfortunately SoftPlan will not allow you to angle a symbol like that. You will have to do it in another program such as Sketchup. Or you can save out a line drawing and redraw the pipes using lines.

About the only thing you could do that is fully SoftPlan would be to create the pipes using railings. You would turn off the spindles, corner posts, and toerail. Give the railing a round profile of the appropriate size and draw out the pipes using this railing and set the heights to form the slope.
