MEP horizontal cable trays with the back against the wall

Hello,

 

Could anyone please tell me how to draw cable ladder that is horizontal and also with the back against the wall? I attach several images with the ladder in question circled in red. Image number 4 is from my own project - the circled part IS a ladder, but I could not make it look nice, so for time being I switched the height and width around and ended with this monstrosity 🙂 The idea in my project is that cables come from the top, then switch to a ladder that is on the side and enters the building and then the ladder continues same way on the side of the wall.

 

I tried rotating it, I tried slope setting, but just couldn't figure it out.

 

I am looking forward to your tips,

Sincerely,

Jakob

Update:

 

I have installed addon from centralinnovation.com called Objective and it enabled me to achieve the required result. I had to place a cable ladder vertically, then use Section Tool and within the section I was able to use addon to Rotate the ladder 90 degrees (see attached image).

 

This addon is paid and rather expensive for what I have a need for and I do not understand why Archicad does not have a Rotate function in the section view. Hopefully, it is something that will get implemented in the next release 🤞 And while looking for the solution, I came across a guide for Revit and it used the same steps as I did, except there is no need for addon in Revit to achieve this.
