It is a row of deck planking around the outside edge of a deck (similar to trim around a window)

The setting is found under the "room specification" dialogue box in the "deck" heading.

When i set my number of border plans to anything except 0, it doesn't show on 3d views.

Thanks

I have set my number of border planks to 1, and also checked automatically regenerate deck framing but still nothing

Up the number to 5 and change to vector view. You will see that the border planks are there.

If you use the default deck material -- Pine (Honey), it shows correctly.

Might be one for support.

Its working.  You just can't really see it with the texture you're using.  The texture has a plank pattern in it so the border doesn't show up very well...

That was my thought in the end but hoping there was something else.

Thanks for the help!
