Fence re-sizing.

Recommended Posts

Hi My client has decided on the type of fence she wants and on the weekend her son cut the existing picket fence to lengths of 1500mm (five feet).  My issue is I am unable to size the fence pieces that I have made a block for and added to my "User Library": I have also tried to rebuild the block with the standard library fences. The program allows me to turn them and adjust the heights but not the lengths.

What am I not seeing clearly. ?

The inner sections between the fence posts need to be 1500mm ( Five feet) and each post is 125mm (5 inches) . 

Many Thank Robyn

I have worked it out. You can re-size as you are building the fence style with the library pieces but once you make a block you cannot change the size. That's sad, I hope I am wrong.

Did  you make a Architectural Block?  you probably need to "explode the block" to resize it.

 

Normally fences are just like Railings you set the Newel (post)  Spacing to your desired measurement , however you may find that HD divides the distance up evenly rather than using 1500mmm panels and a short one at the end, which would be how it is usually done with premade panels, so your blocks may work better in that case.
