Add 3D Object To Slab

Spotlight: Spotlight > Architectural

A symbol or plug-in object, such as a skylight, can be inserted into a slab. The symbol geometry modifies the slab while inserting itself into the slab, similarly to the way a door or window is inserted into a wall. Symbols with a hole-cutting component (3D wall hole component) cut the slab.

To add a 3D symbol to a slab:

Select both the slab and the 3D symbol.

Select the command.

The symbol is inserted into the slab.

The symbol can only be selected and modified in Edit Modifiers mode.
