Option to choose Reference Plane for Roofs

Hello all,

 

We need such option...

...for Roofs as well... so urgently

 

To do correct construction in case of different pitches...with only and always the pivot for pitch on the lower plane... sometimes causes a lot of auxiliary lines etc.

 

Even mostly, we need the pivot and reference height on the upper plane.

Changes of thickness are mostly on the underside.

meanwhile...

Remembered, working in section etc., that by pitching with the mouse at the upper plane, the pivot seems to change upwards.

At least something... for now... 🤔

 

...and something else (I won't rise a separate 'wish' for this):

It was helpful to see the pivot in section/elevation projections.

It makes sense, especially since we don't have a dedicated tool for ramps. I imagine most use the roof tool to model ramps. And the reference plane underneath doesn't make much sense on this occasion, as you said, for any changes in thickness.

...even more reason to bring it on top... in remembrance again... and to underline the urgency...😉
