Auto Deck- Multiple Joist Size
SoftPlan Version:
2018

Hello!

Using the auto deck function, is there a way to have multiple joist sizes? I would like to have 2x8 joist and also have 2x10 joist for the parameter [as well as 1x10 azek on the parameter]. When I change the size of one joist, all joist and ring joist changed as well, even after exploding the deck. I also tried adding an additional ring joist on the exterior of the deck, exploded it, but it is still linked to the original ring joist size. Is there a way to make each joist/ring joist a separate object?

Thanks!

Levels

After exploding the deck you can assign various components different "Levels". Any items on the same level will have identical size and offset. So you could assign say level 1 to the joists and have them be 7 1/4" tall and assign level 2 to the ring joists and have them be 9 1/4" tall.
