Thin bed shower suggestions

Hello everyone, I hope some of you can give me some suggestions for my first thin bed handicap accessible shower. I am going over 3/4 advantech. I will apply felt paper then staple down wire mesh. I want to use a noble thin bed drain. Type s mortar from you know where (HD).
The thickness of the bed at the drain will be about 5/8". I will be using nobles drain flashing and finally noble seal TS over the mud and on the walls. I am wondering how long I have to let the mud cute before applying the noble seal? If anyone has any ideas or better products please let me know. A little background about me, I was and am a professional contractor (once again). I took an eight year break from building while serving in the military full time. So if my questions seem stupid or out of date it is because I am just now catching up on the latest building materials and products. I maintained my CSL the whole time I was enlisted knowing I would one day return to doing what I truly love. I sincerely appreciate any help or suggestions. Thank you.

Why not just use a Pro Base? Everything is done already.

What level is the bathroom on?
Thank you for the reply. I would love to use the probase however the plumbing is crammed into very tight odd spaces resulting in a very awkward drain location. This is a rather unconventional setting for a walk in shower. The drain is just randomly placed so the pitch is going to be odd. I will take some pics of the bathroom tomorrow.
Bathroom is on the first floor of newly framed home
I don't think that the ProBase is a barrier free system.

To the OP, why can that drain not be relocated?

I would use something like the ARC Tuff Form system.

Are the floors I Joists or lumber
You might have weird slopes if the drain isn't centered. Perhaps a linear drain would be better.
Thanks for all the replies I'm going to try to post some pics now. The drain can't be moved because there is a joist running through the center of the shower stall. I only have 1 3/4" to play with here hence the thin bed. Waterproofing this is really going to be tricky.

Just buy a larger Tuff Form and cut it to size. 1 3/4" is more than enough.
Thanks for the suggestion tntservices I gave them a call now I'm waiting for a call back from one of their reps. I would really like to use this system!
My rep is awesome. He even offers to come out to the installation to help or just be there is we need anything. Hopefully your rep is just as good.

I have a Wet Room system with an adjustable drain position. Please see the link below.
