deck ghosting

Recommended Posts

I am designing a deck around our above ground pool. There has been a lot of changes to get the right shape around the oval shaped pool.

I am using Architecture 2018.

 

When in 3D view, I see a deck at the default height that appears after I adjust the absolute elevation of the deck's floor.

 

I've attached the image of the problem.

 

As a dire attempt to figure out what it is tied to, I removed everything including the house shell until nothing was left.

This deck ghost remains.

 

Has anyone seen this before? I've tried search forum and the KB for ghosting with no success. Maybe this is a bug?

Ok.  Here it is.

 

BTW. These plan where created in HD Suite 6.0. Then converted using the Chief Architect Viewer X8 (64 bit) supplied with my upgrade purchase to HD Architect 2018.

Maybe that is where the problem started..

This is germane to legacy plans and to Architectural in general. Legacy plans always have to be worked over when saved forward, you get error messages about material names that have since changed and also how 3D symbols differ from more antique versions to more modern ones (these often have to be deleted and then replaced). I have seen this kind of deck ghosting as well mainly in legacy plans. This would be  easy to fix in Home Designer Pro or Premier but not so much in Architectural because Architectural has NO ability to select and edit framing or deck framing members (you cannot merely select and delete the unwanted deck planking), sorry.
