I just noticed that if I use a wall to SEO a slab or mesh (or anything else, I presume)... the wall END will NOT cut the TARGET element!

This is disheartening as all my meshes will have a little EXTRA SLICE where they meet a wall with a wall end...

Fortunately, if I DISABLE the Wall End 3d display, it cuts as I want.... Bad news is that the "core" will be represented only by the OVERRIDING material and not the COMPOSITE that I want...

Let me know if this makes sense...

The wall end is a separate object, and while associated to the wall and it trims the wall, it is not actually part of the wall.

What happens if you select the wall and the wall end object and then do the SEO?

SEO does not recognize wall ends as a legit operator..

In my opinion the objects 'Wall End' should be replaced trough the possibility to "generate" sloped and composite wall ends as a part of the wall.
this wall ends now behave never completely like the wall itself, they, or et least the sloped one doesn't appear even in top view.

While we're on the issue of shortcomings of the wall...
  • absolutely need sloping wall top (used to be able to do this a long time ago
  • Need to be able to LINK an Height ELEVATION tag to it.

Must have been a very long time ago, I don't remember it.
But I am getting old and forgetful now. :wink:

Yes it it would be nice to be able to use the Level Dimension Tool.
But don't forget you can use the elevation label - not quite the same because it doesn't have the symbol.

Hidden in a way that when you want to change it you cannot figure out how till you notice the primary menu has a new option...
