Location: 04 Masonry An extrusion in the shape of a sloped brick rowlock course. Set the Angle and Brick Width of the rowlock, and the Thickness and Air Space of the veneer it rests upon. The Mortar Bed option will draw a wedge of mortar below the brick in large scale sections. The brick itself uses the object's fill
Pen 50 is the poché pen. It is gray (80% +/- I think) in model and layout pen sets. It should be the background color of any cut fill in new construction. (Existing condition elements are white.) That said, one of the advantages of pen sets is having black+grayscale output while the much more colorful model pens help you stay
This is a complicated condition. It's surrounded by ordinary modeling elements, but it's difficult to weave those elements together such that it all cleans up and looks correct in section. Here's the ordinary elements by themselves. I put in some detail objects for clarity: The joist deck slab is basically right. The concrete slab needs to reach in to
