      This was covered a while back on Chieftalk – try doing a search.
      It is impossible to do in Chief by using standard walls – they won’t tilt.
      I think the best thing to do is to create the wall and then make a symbol out of it.
      You can then open the wall symbol in Chief and rotate it as you wish.

      No, just us ‘Ol Chief User Pharts’ lingering around! Certainly not do-able in the older versions but who knows what the new release is capable of? Perhaps there is a work-a-round possible?

      Hi All

      I have a client who wants to build the rear wall of a house which is not vertical – seriously!

      To try and make it clear – if you were looking at it from the inside it slopes away from you.

      The top is further away from you than the base. Hopefully that is  a clear enough description.

      The question is does anyone know how to draw it in Chief?

      Thanks in advance
