Custom shaped gable

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys I have a heritage project with a custom shaped gable and need some help please.

I have created a gable as per attached, using a simple 2d poly line (and extruding by 300mm in top/plan).

I now need to rotate the whole project into the elevation plane, but struggle to find the command. Any suggestions?


Also is there any way to rotate a object which was created with a slab/floor tool?

Hi Victor,

I assume you first drew this in Top/Plan view...now you need to change the view and rotate the object...

If it's 2D or an extrude from 2D, you can simply go to a side view and use the Rotate command to "stand it up"


Slabs and floors CANNOT be rotated.


However, you CAN slope a slab using the Slab Drainage tool
