carport

Recommended Posts

What is the best way to create carports? I have one connecting with a breezeway and have tried to create on the main level of the house and drop the floor level to match the foundation height. I also tried to draw it in the foundation but that didn't work out either. In the past I've used a polyline solid for the flooring and then manually added columns and wall made from solids. There has to be a better way.

I have searched the forum...didn't really find anything.

Thanks

I commonly draw them with railing walls set to "Post to Beam - no rails" but you are right in that there is more than one way to emulate them, just pick one and go for it is my advice. When printed no one will know or care "how" you did it.

That's what I did and just lowered the floor level to match the foundation wall. The breezeway was a different story though...lol
