epodcast198 – Slab Drainage

Vectorworks 2017 introduced Slab Drainage. There is a specific tool to use to create the drainage. This tool has several modes that allow you to add a drain, edit the location and direction, connect drains together, and edit the valleys. The slab drainage can change the entire slab, or it can taper a component of the slab, but it only works with slabs.

  1. What is the most effective way to create a parkade suspended slab/ramp? We have tried the road tool but it has too many limitations. We have tried the slab and slab drainage tool, which appears to work well, except it does not slope the slab the way a parkade suspended slab is sloped.
