Screen Door and Screen for Deck

Recommended Posts

I'm using Chief Architect X9 on an ASUS laptop.

I'm trying to import a screen for a deck that I'm trying to design because there are no screens for a deck in the catalog.How can I do that?

I also want to created or design  a Screen Door for the screened-in deck using CAD. What is the easiest and simplest way to do that?

 

Thanks

Give these 4 videos a peek. These are by a really great user named Steve. Pretty Helpful.

I watch the video last night. He's not clear step by step of how he did it. However, I was able to created a screened porch using wire fence that is already in the Software Catalog.

 

Where did he import the screen for his porch? And how did he do it?

Also, did he created the screen door using CAD in the same plan file or did create a new plan in to created the door?

Do you have any simple instructions how I can create a door using CAD to save on my User Catalog?

The screen door video was clear and well done. What don't you understand? Did you try what Steve showed?

 

Have you reviewed the articles and videos on chiefarchitect.com and on the Chief YouTube channel?

 

Lots of good info there.

I understand everything he did. And it was a great video. However, i need to know what layer set he used to draw out the door outside of the original plan. Or did you he open a new plan to draw the door from CAD and then saved into his user Catalog?

No need for a special layer set.

He created a door symbol in a new plan and saved it to the library.
