Shell Styles Crossover


The more I build BIMish models in Vectorworks the more I find I'm having to recreate slab styles as roof styles and vis versa (sloping ceiling, ramps in slabs,...).Either of those as a wall style is also useful for generating details and the wall tool being the best for laying out lines of shell detail. The problem being I end up with two even three resources to then describe what is effectively intended to be the same system. 


It would be good if the three separate shell styles could cross-over between all the shell tools.

One 2017 thing that might help is that you can use now Slabs,

with the new drain water slope settings,

to create ramps and such.

Slab falls cover drainage well, but that function is useless when you have a slab between slabs.

Carpark Ramps, threshold ramps for wheel chairs, or anywhere else the bottom of the slab runs parallel to the top sloping face.  At the moment roof faces handle these situations better.


Then you end up with a roof style and a slab style
