Dept. of Subtle - Flipping a Fitting Replaces Other Fitting

This is a follow up to last Friday's post about sloping pipe. After using the Slope tool you might have noticed that a couple fittings were reversed. When I used the "flip arrow" to fix them I realized that another fitting nearby was affected too. A fitting getting flipped is effectively changing the slope of the pipe slightly because the origin of the fitting is altered slightly. The larger the fitting and the more eccentric the shape the more it can affect the piping. I created a second VIDEO to explain it further.
