Slab and Ceiling: Cut to Walls?

Recommended Posts

I know this is a thing and forgot how to do it. Can someone refresh my memory here? 


For example, here's my wall:



And I want a floor slab and a ceiling that automatically trims to the shape of the walls. 


How do you do this again?

@trashcan...assuming your walls form a "wall network" (all are joined), you can use the paint bucket mode (Inner Boundary mode) of the Slab tool to "pour" yourself a slab....you can then adjust it for elevation if necessary...I usually do that in a front or side view. Of course, it can be automated by using Layer heights, etc.  You'll probably want to use the same tool for ceilings?
