Installing deck around pool skp file

Recommended Posts

I found the perfect pools skp file. It has an endless feature as part of the pool (meaning the feature looks like the water flows off the end). I have built my deck around the pool and have it even with the pool just under the tile. However, the endless part is also level and does not show the water falling over into the basin. Can I fix that? Thanking you in advance for any help you can give me.

Fix what, exactly? The animated water (or lack thereof) or something else, please?

Hi David, the water that flows over the pool into a basin, the basin is below the deck and therefore it just looks like the water is level with the grass (or deck). I'll attache the pool and hopefully that will explain it better. I think it's actually called a negative edge.

In order for your .skp symbol to show properly, you will have to make a hole in the deck which surrounds the pool object and also cut a hole in the terrain (if you have created a terrain Plane). Since I cannot see your plan file, that is my advice for now.

David, I'm sorry it's taken so long to thank you. It worked with your suggestion. As always, I thank you so very much for your help.
