Hello All,

Looking for a symbol for deck lattice.  I am unclear on how to adjust the vert lattice in the symbols directory under misc.  Looking for 1 1/2" slats creating 1/2" square holes.

Much appreciated

Barbara

Try using Skirting. Edit the edge of the deck and check "Skirting" Set an appropriate height. Is this what you are looking for?

Hello Bill,

I have sent a pic of the 1st level of a 2 level deck.  The section closest to the house shows the privacy lattice above the deck floor and below.

I edited the edge of the deck and was unable to find skirting. The lattice is incorrect and changes appearance when I adjust to fit.

 

Thks again for your quick response!

Adjusting a symbol will cause it to stretch out of proportion. If you want to use the symbol that comes with SoftPlan for the lattice you will have to use multiple copies of it rather than adjusting the size.

You said you were unable to find the skirting setting for the deck. Select Edit Item and then click on an edge of the deck. You will find the Skirting setting in the edit dialog for the deck edge. You will need to do this for all edges you wish to have skirting.

If you need a paint pattern for elevations this one matches the specifications of 1 1/2" slats and 1/2" holes.

Hi Bill,

Had a look see at a sample drawing with lattice.  I reloaded the 3d material lattice textures into MY file folder. (as they appeared to be missing)

Seems to be ok now.  Thks for your help!
