Help with Cable Railing for Deck

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm trying to build this deck using cable rail but I can't seem to get the cables to go parallel with the whole rail system, I must be doing something wrong but I don't know what. Please Help. 've attached a jpg. for you to look at.    Thanks Vinnie

This was brought up in a recent post

 

Set the rail to panel and type to cable

In the wall DBX, set the 'Rail Style' to "Panels" 

 

then in the 'Newels/Balusters' specification under "Panels" click on the library button and navigate to the "Architectural/Fences/Cable and click the cable panel of your choice, (only two there).

 

You should then have the cable fence you want.

 

Andy.

Well I did it, it was that easy. I don't know why I couldn't figure that out on my own, I'm a little embarrassed to tell you the trust.

 

Thanks Again

Glad you have it solved

No reason whatsoever to feel that way - what the forum is for

Thanks Andy - you were much more concise in the answer than me

There is also a neat trick to get the railing to the outside of the deck so it looks like its mounted correctly using one invisible railing and another visible one just outside that.
