concrete deck for entrance landing

Recommended Posts

I am drawing an outside stairway to the upstairs for an entrance of a duplex. How can I change the decking to be concrete? i can edit the beams and posts to be iron and the stairs and the railings but the decking I have not figured out how to edit.

Change your room definition from Deck to Porch. That should take care of it by default.

Thanks Chopsaw, I tried the solution two things happened all the framing for the deck went away the posts and beams. The second thing was the roof line configured to cover the now porch. any other ideas?

Open porch room dbx/structure/uncheck "roof over this room" and rebuild roof planes.

Hopefully Shane's suggestion will fix the roof for you, and the deck framing is what you wanted to replace with concrete?  Not to sure why the posts and beams were affected.  Could you post some screen shots or maybe the plan file?

Don't use a room or deck. Create a landing, manually add the posts, then change the landing materials.

What I wanted to accomplish was to replace the decking with concrete and assign the post and beams to be steel, I had a issue with the joisting but made it 3/4" plywood and changed the planking to 0 gap and a width wider than the landing and assigned concrete to it. What I wanted to end up with was a steel beam and post framing supporting a 4" to 6" concrete deck. Here is the plan at ground zero again. stairs dup.pdfmeeting 1.plan

      Hi Everyone,
       
      I have an L-shaped stair with a landing at the center.  Is there a way to independently apply railings or other specifications to just the top or bottom portion of the stair?
       
      Thanks

      In South Florida, homes are prominently constructed out of concrete blocks, metal studs & beams, concrete headers/lentils/beams, and wooden trusses. Which software would you recommend that would be best suited for concrete home construction? 
      Also, I can't find any training videos for CA that uses concrete blocks and therefore I wanted to ask you all if you know of any videos or tutorials for CA... Or maybe one of the aforementioned software would be better suited for concrete block construction?

      Is it normal that a railing wall sit on top of the floor finish?  Attached is a picture of a guard railing that is located on the second floor.  I'm curious as to why the lowest rail (shoe) is not resting on the subfloor...but on top of the carpet.  Seems odd to me.  
       
      Have I goofed something up? 
      I'm sure you will let me know if I need to attach the plan...
       
      Thanks all.

      X7 Hollowcore Plank library with four subfolders:
       
      1. CAD Sections. These are CAD cross-sections; each section is a CAD Block consisting of a perimeter shape and individual voids. Insert layer is CAD, Default.
      2. Face Sections. These are the CAD cross-sections saved as a 3D Face to allow creating custom length extrusions; just explode the Architectural Block, select the face, and extrude. You could easily extract these faces from the solids (see #3), but I've included them for convenience. Insert layer is Slabs.
      3. Solids (Architectural Blocks). These are solids saved as Architectural Blocks; the intent is to provide something that can be trimmed with another solid to allow creating planks with cut ends or holes. Insert layer is Slabs.
      4. Symbols. These are the solids converted to a symbol to allow for easy stretching in the depth direction to provide planks of varying lengths. Insert layer is Slabs.
       
      Using a combination of these types you should be able to create almost any plank layout you need.
