  1. I'm trying to get a materials list going for decks, but the deck plank materials aren't being factored into Calculate Materials in Area/Room. It does work when I Calculate Materials for All Floors or select the planks individually and use Calculate Materials from Selection. I also recently discovered that it works if I calculate in area from a floor above where the planks are, even when nothing is visible on that floor of the plan. How can I remedy this?

    materials list: Count not total ft

    My issue is that in the Count column it tells me the number of feet instead of the number of planks. The only way I can see is to open expand the collapsed selection and count the deck boards myself.

    materials list: Count not total ft

    I just need the number of planks that have been collapsed in a row, not the total square feet. I feel like there's probably an easy way to do this, but I don't know what it is. Thanks.

    Thanks, Nestor. I expect they will come in handy.

    That's great, solver. Can anyone explain how to do that.

    Is there a way to make the top rail of my deck railing rounded?

    Deck Railing - Full Post at Wall

    How can I have a full post at the wall? If I uncheck the "half post at wall" option, the post vanishes altogether. Thanks.

    Dimensioning diagonal walls

    Thanks Eric. I have what I need to continue with this project now. If you could explain to me the CAD portion of it, I'd be grateful. I still don't understand how you got those angles.

    Dimensioning diagonal walls

    I'm really not following. Sorry. Could you walk me through each step?

    Dimensioning diagonal walls

    Thanks Eric, But I don't understand the process here. I drew a circle and some CAD lines but I'm not sure how that helps me. You might have to elaborate a bit for me.

    Dimensioning diagonal walls

    I need my CA walls to match these drawn measurements, but I'm having trouble getting both the diagonal-wall-length and horizontal-wall-to-horizontal-wall dimensions to agree. I think it's because CA can't/won't automatically alter the angle of the diagonal wall. Is there a way to get everything where I want it without eyeballing and manually fine tuning the the angle?

    Changing deck railing thickness pushes railing off the edge

    Wrong file, sorry about that. Here's the right one. Salim.plan Thanks for your help, that sounds like it'll fix my issues.
  15. My deck railings float off the edge of the deck if I change the thickness to 2 1/2" or lower. I need a 1 1/2" thick railing that stays on the deck. I opened an older project, and there the rails could go down to 2 1/2" before they started floating. Maybe a setting needs to be changed, or maybe that's just how the program works? Let me know. The pictures attached are of my black main deck at 1 1/2" rail thickness and my test deck at 3" and 2 1/2" rail thickness. Thanks. Salim.plan
