Can a sloping slab or a ramp be created by using the SLAB TOOL?
Using the custom edge option doesn't work for me in this case.
I understood that I could use roof or mesh tool, but in this case I wouldn't have wanted layers of the usual slab shown in a e.g. section.

Thank you!

Well, you can't slope a slab, since – you know – it's a slab :/

There was a wishlist item to unify both roof and slab, or to bring the the possibility of a slope to the slab.

I don't quite understand which troubles you're facing when using a roof? :?
If you need a ramp you could also use the stair tool, but using it with the beam only.

What you could do is make a composite for slabs and roofs.
And then use the composite for a single plane roof.

Or another option would be using the shell tool.

Not clear what the problem is in the OP, is it a ramp creation or presentation issue ?
