Expand Slab Edge Capabilities

Anonymous
Not applicable
In ArchiCAD 13 the angled slab edge feature was introduced giving us more modelling options... but nothing else happened to it after that...
I wish we could have more options on that feature such as switch to angled edge or beveled, flat beveled, its radius on its upper or lower or both faces (kind of like the CADimage tool)
Cheers,

Essential in my opinion.
Basically we should have the ability to define and assign any profile to individual Slab edges.
(The same should be available for Roof edges. And maybe even Shell edges?)

Definitely essential!

Need to have an option to make the bottom of the slab the anchor for the angle rather than only using the top as the anchor.

Now that we have the adjustable reference plane for slabs in 18 it would make sense that the angle is measured from there (to me at least).

Not convinced this is needed, whilst it would add to ACs flexibility I personally think the profile tool covers most situations and provides a great opportunity to show edge construction detail in the same process.
