Sloping / ramped swimming pool depth transitions - HD Pro 2019


Recommended Posts

Is there a method that can be utilized to generate ramped / sloping swimming pool depth transitions in Home Designer Pro 2019?  I have searched the help articles and videos database and not found anything on this topic.  My swimming pool boundary is represented in my current plan with a constant elevation terrain feature.  I would like to assign separate constant depth regions in this boundary with different depths and then have the bottom of the pool slope between those constant depth regions like the terrain perimeter will slope.  This will allow me to create a layout for the pool contractor that has the planform definition of these different depth regions.  Viewing this pool floor in 3D will allow me to see if any of the slopes are too steep prior to locking in the 2D layout for the pool contractor.  Thanks in advance for assistance on this!

*** I see you said Pro 2019 ***

 

 

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) 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.

No -- not anything that will blend and make smooth transitions.

  • Thanks for the quick response Eric!
  • I have updated my signature, thanks for the tip
  • Can this be done in a newer version of Home Designer?
  • Can the 3D pool terrain slope be done in Chief?
    • If so, can that 3D sloping terrain then be imported back to Home Designer and the Layout created in Home Designer showing the slopes?

Showing a pic with the elevations, might help someone to understand what you are trying to model.

Attaching the pool plan file could also be useful.
