Hey fellow sketchup designers! I’m creating a detail for a small wrap around deck job. I create my construction details as 3d details, small vignettes. My question is about 3d details, not looking for a 2d option since that’s not what I am providing here for my building department.
I’m looking for ideas or suggestions or workflows on how to best create a 3d construction detail of a wrap around deck when the deck should be sloped. The problem with this kind of detail, is the sloped part of this detail. As soon as I slope a 3d deck detail as it joins in the corner, it becomes a more complicated detail to draw as now I have to put in plumb cuts, straighten joist hangers, etc.
Would anyone suggest not physically sloping the decks as they join together in the detail and instead just leaving a note about the slope for the detail? I think this is maybe a better way to go, but wondering how anyone else does this and what they think is the better option. If I didn’t slope the deck and just called it out with a note calling out the slope angle, that would surely save me a lot of time as I draw deck details down the road…
