Creating Angled Board + Batten Along Stairs

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I am trying to creating board + batten that goes horizontally along a wall then angles up along the stairs. I have watched one video that shows how to dot it with CAD lines but those tips don't seem to be helping. I am using Home Designer Pro 2021.

 

Here is a picture of what I am trying to create.

 

I am very new to HDPro. Thank you in advance!

*** I see you said Pro 2021 ***

 

 

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.

Experiment with the Custom Backsplash tool.

 

Take an elevation, draw the background (you don't need to do individual panels) with Cut Finish Layers set, then draw the styles and rails with Cut Finish Layers unchecked.

Thank you! This is as far as I feel like I can go.

 

How do I get the CAD lines to show up in the 3D image? The only thing that comes up in 3D view is the white area without the CAD lines.

Cad lines do not show in 3D.

Draw them with CAD lines? I'm sorry, I'm very new to this.

 

I drew CAD lines with the Cut Finish Layers off but I don't understand how else to draw the styles + rails.
