How would I model a guastavino vault?
I know roughly how to create the simple barrel vaults, however I'd like to be able to create a kind of roof structure which curves down to the ground/columns.
Thanks.

Thanks for all the response.
I think Revit would be easily able to create my vaults. Unfortunately, it seems ArchiCad isn't quite capable at this point.
But if I was to create my vaults in Revit, would I take it back in to ArchiCad as an object?
Thanks

Try this exercise with OBJECTiVE. I made the attached image in a few minutes using its profiling, bending, and cutting tools.
