For some reason I am unable to bring skirting into a drawing for a deck. I am using Envisioneer Construction Suite V10, and in the past the process of constructing a deck has been very easy and automatic. I haven’t drawn any decks for about 2 years, and now I find that the skirting doesn’t display as I would expect if I keep the default height of the deck relative to the building location. Interestingly, if I modify the height to have the deck come in higher than the building location of 3.5″ above grade, the skirting will display. What am I doing wrong?
The skirting is not displayed becuase the terrain base level is set to 0 by default.
If you lower the terrain base level low enough then the deck skirting will show.
settings>document settings>terrain>terrain mesh>base level
Thanks for the input, Louisaco. Unfortunately this solution didn’t work. I suspect that I have a corrupted program, as when I attempt to make changes in settings I get an error message: “Path or Directories do not exisit: -Project Directory.
