chainlink fence

Recommended Posts

i've got a project requiring chain link fencing. i downloaded from 3d warehouse (sketchup) a chainlink panel. it bogs down the plan file big time. how do you guys go about setting this up?

they have JUST the chainlink, no poles. i could be wrong tho or i need to build the poles into the fencing

 

The "Poles" are applied via the Railing wall Dialog box once put into your plan, you specify the "Newels" to be "round" and there is an input box for their diameter. Then on the "Rails" tab of that same dialog, you can assign "Round" top and bottom "rails" to complete the construct.

How would you add a gate?
Is there a rounded cap for each pole?

How would you add a gate? - Just like adding a door to a wall, add the door and select the style from the library
Is there a rounded cap for each pole? - Yes, in the library
