Trying to figure out what’s the best way to model sloped slabs.
Ideally, our workflow would be to form our entire flat slab, add or remove vertex points to the top/bottom faces, drag those vertices in the z-axis or laterally as needed.
The closest way I’ve found is using a mesh for the slab object, but then in BricsCAD BIM, sections cut through the slab won’t show material fill since it’s not a solid (I’m aware that converting to solid is possible, but then vertices are no longer easy to manipulate)
Using Shape, I’ve modeled a solid resembling what I’m looking for by subtracting an upside-down pyramid from a box solid. See attached image.
I can then select all the top faces and use the “move point” command to move the central vertex. It’s usable, but difficult to move the point in other than z-axis without directly typing in the displacement. I’m not seeing a way to add more vertex points to the solid. Any ideas?
Fast modeling of slab points is a critical feature for us, since slab grading is a big part of our work.
