Gidday I was just wondering if you can create non-vertical walls (ie- on 70 degree angles instead of 90) in ArchiCAD 8/9? If so, how?

***UPDATE***

Okay, I have found canted wall object...how do you put openings and delete the generic openings in it??

Also, how do you create concrete ramps in the slab?? I was thinking just using the roof tool but can you change all the attibutes so it looks like a slab? IS there an actual ramp slab function?

Thanks in advance. I appreciate your help.

For non- vertical walls use the wall accessories from the extras menu.
Or even better , you can buy ArchiWall from Cigraph.

As for ramps you are correct, all you need to do is use the roof tool and give it the same properties (section fill, line, model materials etc) with your slab.
