Summary: Sloping walls, whether straight or curved, should be easier to model and not require editing of masses to achieve these forms.
Description: Native functionality for creating straight & curved sloping walls, including the ability to host standard objects such as windows and doors either vertically or parallel with the wall slope. Creating sloping walls from massing is pointless unless they have the exact same funtionality as standard vertical walls ie. fillet, trim, attatch to roof & manipulation of skins etc.
How Used: I really needed this feature recently for one of my students who wanted curved sloping walls with individual skins and parallel-to-wall hosted windows in a design assignment. Sloping walls from masses don't behave the same as regular walls (cannot be edited easily, unless you keep the mass, edit it and re-make the walls). It should be simpler to create these forms.
Feature Affinity: Walls
