About building parametric objects with GDL.

Is there a tool / object for making a mesh with a specified thickness?


As in the topic, I wanted to ask you guys if there exists any tool that would allow me to create a mesh with a specified thickness, or layers?
For example, I have a terrain to model, but the ground has layers: 3cm of grass, 10cm of ground and some other layers. The terrain is not flat - it has some holes and bumps. Is it possible to create this with one tool/object, not using layered slabs, roofs and shell?

Thank you.

Any help would be appreciated. I am constantly getting this error message for both 25 and 26 even in a new file.

Hello everyone,

I love this object and I use it in all my projects. 

But, small problem with the AC27 version. Hatching does not follow on each layer. It is the replacement hatch that takes over, so we no longer see the layers.

Is it possible to update the program in 27?
