deck issue

Recommended Posts

hey guys, this happens from time to time. i complete the exterior of the home, find a wall dimension that's off, delete the deck/porch, then i adjust the walls accordingly. when i go back to redraw my railing for my deck/porch it doesn't bring in the deck framing or boards. see attached files. thanks!

 

in cad drawings i know there is a reload command that updates any movements to suit the rest of the drawing. does chief have this because it appears it trys to remember what was there before. before i even have a chance to name it a porch, patio or whatnot, it goes back to what i had it named before. in this case it was existing front porch.

Click on the room that is your deck.  Open up the dialog box.  Open "deck".  Highlight "automatically regenerate deck framing".  It will then re-appear.  A deck sees the joists and planking as part of the framing.

Rob,  There is a default setting for decks, "Automatically Regenerate Deck Framing".  Or if you have customized the framing you might want to use the "Keep Deck Framing After the Deck Room is Deleted" to avoid that issue.

 

It is in Room Specifications> Deck DBX or Floors and Rooms > Room Types > Deck Defaults
