Hi Andrew
Is this what you are trying to do, or something else?

Yes I can simply use the gripper and rotate 2deg but I was using the pipe tool. I tried to get the section rotated within the command

The pipe tool ask for a path curve. That may be also a straight line which is turned for x degrees.

Hope that is what you mean.

... for this I don't see a solution with the pipe tool but you can reach it with the One Rail Sweep Solid. While the rotated square pipe must be hollowed I think it is much more complex than to use the gripper.
