How To: angled/sloped wall...

Recommended Posts

Hello, all.  I use CA X1.  Can someone provide insight on how to create an angled/slope wall like in the attached pic (circled in yellow)?  A step by step how-to would be greatly appreciated as I am no expert in CA...but still learning.

 

Thanks so much for your time,

Roz

Not an expert in all of the wall controls/features but I think things like this are done using the primitive tools such as solids, cones, boxes and the likes. Certain other members will be able to provide more detailed guidance than I.

That particular instance I would probably just do with a polyline solid.

I would use a Molding Polyline.  It can go around corners.

 

I purposely didn't mention that option for this particular instance because it doesn't appear as if that profile actually wraps any corners.  If it doesn't wrap the corners, the moulding polyline can result in some awkward transitions and extra lines

Thanks everyone for your input. I'll give them a try.

By the way, the slope does wrap.

With a population of nearly 23,000,000 people I'd say guessing ANY house was in Southern California would be a decent bet :)

Not necessarily Grasshoppa.  Even though the population is 23,000,000,  there are only 379 people living in California that can afford to buy a  house in California,  hence,  not 23 million homes.

How true how true. I know places like Alaska people often own several homes...a house in town, a ski chalet, and a cabin on the lake...maybe even more.
