Hi everyone :)

Is there a way to align this wall to the edge of the slab. I'd like to do this in the 3D view if possible.

It seem like the align tool is not meant to work with different kind of objects like slabs/walls. I sometimes want to aling a wall to a line that belongs to a dwg and it doesn't work as well.

Thanks a lot :)

You could use the 'Align Tool' > 'Special Align' option.
But personally I would just drag the wall from the point you want to touch the slab to that slab point.
This can be done in plan or 3D (or elevation) and you can constrain the direction with the shift key and/or guide lines.
Feel free to also turn of layers so other elements do not get in the way.
