Decks with Post Bracing, need help

Recommended Posts

Im trying to put 45 Deg Post Bracing as required by code when the deck surface is over 8 feet from the terrain.  I can't find any way to add that to my deck.  Am I just out of luck?  I am using Home Designer Pro 2019.  I was hoping that I could grab a post make it about 3  feet long  and grab the end handle and rotate it...

 

Anyone know how to add in post bracing?

 

Thanks!

In terms of appearances, you can emulate the bracing using custom made slabs, shaped to emulate the bracing

I use sloped soffits to make the bracing I need. Then position them in an elevation view. Once the 1st one is done, then I go to plan view and copy and paste them to the required locations.

I see you said Pro 2019, but you can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on, then see mine for an example) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

You can use a Custom Backsplash to do this too.

 

Draw the shape against a wall, then move into position.

 

It helps to draw CAD lines in elevation, then snap the edges of the Backsplash to them for exact size/shape.
