Hello, how can I make a 3D street with a slab and a mesh in AC26?

I know about Solid Elements Operation but I need more informations. 
Thank you!

The way we do it, with SEO, is to put the road-slab as target and ground mesh as operator and do an INTERSECT-operation. This requires the road slab to be thick enough to intersect with the ground all the way. Then we take the mesh as the target and the road (now shaped as the mesh) as operator and do a SUBTRACT-operation. Otherwise you will have road+mesh visible at the same time and it wont look good in 3d.

It doesn’t work…. Eaven if in Ac25 it works in AC26 it doesn’t….

I use my tube object since it maps the textures but the railing tool can work well too, other than intersections

Can you explain more what exactly you would like to do?

Model the section of your road as a Complex Profile then apply said profile as the Top Rail or Rail of a railing. You might need to adjust the railing height, but you will then be able to draw continuous sections. The issue with this is as Seneca pointed out, the inability to create intersections with this method.
