Wall styles: different height & length for each component


I'm raising this issue once again, hoping that the fact that even natives are getting restless would make NNA listen to the users ? despite recent reports that it is against current corporate policy.

In these parts of the world, VW is next to useless because modeling precast insulated sandwich elements is not realistically possible. It has recently been brough to my attention that walls are not adequate in other parts of the world, either, for other, but actually similar reasons.

It appears that the wall tool (wall styles) need to be completely re-engineered. Here's my proposal:

1. Each component should have a height.

2. Each component should have vertical and horizontal offset (?) and a toggle for responding to wall peaks.

3. Each component should be able to be used to cap the wall

a) at both ends

b) at wall openings

with a different offset from the ?internal? surface. both surfaces.

4. Maximum allowed/certified height should have a field in the database.

Considering the importance of pre-cast walls in modern structures

it is essential to be able to model them properly and within the prescribed limits.
