Editing Deck Step Options

Using Architect 3D, you can add steps to any side of your deck and customize them to meet your needs. By default, steps are added to the center of the deck side, but can be moved easily into any position.

Note : Steps are added to a deck by clicking the Insert Steps button when a deck edge is selected.

Note : Always press Return to accept new values in a field.


Width defines the distance from one side of the steps to the other side.

Height defines the distance from the base of the steps to the top step. This is especially useful when designing multi-level decks, when you do not want the steps to reach the ground, just the next deck level.

Left Handrail and Right Handrail checkboxes control the display of the left and right handrails. When selected, the handrail is enabled; when deselected it is disabled.
