Post to Beam Railing and Wraparound Deck Stairs

Recommended Posts

Wondering if there's an easy way to get the posts and beams to show up in camera views in this case where I have a deck with wraparound stairs and post-to-beam railings? The automatic doorways are making the railing walls invisible and I can't delete these doorways, just resize them. Am I missing something?! I know I could manually add the posts and beams, but if I can get this to work, it would be easier... especially if the client decides to change the deck size later on.

If your wall layer is set to display as others suggested, then posting the plan file will help.

The layer is on. The problem is the doorways that are automatically created at the top of the stairs. They span from corner to corner. In doing so, Chief seems to make the whole wall invisible. If I make the doorways narrower, then I get posts and beams. Problem is I just want one post on each corner. I'll post a simple plan shortly.

Stairs by default generate their own openings.
