Ahm, I think yes.

No VW in front of me ...



But I draw my Walls first and Slabs at the end.

Structural Slabs by selecting bounding Walls.

(+ Floor packages above, by Fill Bucket Tool into each Room/Space)


If you have no different Floor packages by Room, you can work with a

single multi compound Slab ....


Generally it is important and helpful to set a "Core" for the suitable Wall

Component for multi Component Walls.

In Slab Style you can set for every Slab Component where it will end,

outer Wall Line, inner Wall Line, outer Core, inner Core, ....


AFAIK that will even work when you haven't set correct Wall Component

Bottom Heights by Story Levels - the Slab will cut out the Wall Components ....



E.g. I will set my outer Insulation/Covering Wall Components to a Story Level

"Bottom of Structural Slab" while my Structural Wall Core will sit on top of

"Top of Structural Slab".

Accordingly in Slab Style,

Structural Component will be defined to go to "outer Side of Core", while non-

structural Floor Components will only got to "inner Side of Wall"
