Hi Eric Miller,

Import the *.jpg image as a trace image--> you can use the floor tool or the deck tool--> trace the contour--> with the floor or deck selected--> Properties bar (right of the screen)--> in the field called "Thickness" for the floors or "Height" for the deck, change the number to fit your necessities--> important!!--> don't forget to click enter after you change any info in the properties bar

Alternatively, you can draw one or more shapes in the Detail tab--> Convert to--> Deck / Floor

Thanks, Patricia for getting back to me. I am sure I tried the "height" and thickness fields, and I was sure to hit the enter button. In the height field, there was a default at 2'. After I changed it to "0" and hit enter, it reverted back to the 2'.

I wasn't aware of the use of the Detail Tab, so I'll give that a shot also. I have tried also to use the 3-D workshop, but, apparently, I have a lot more reading of the manual to do ... I can't seem to get anything to happen in there :)

Hi Eric Miller,

I just tried the properties bar and the Properties bar and thickness field work OK for me (see attached). I changed the thickness to 1'- 6"

The 3D workshop Power Tool is tricky, but very useful. I'd suggest that you study the manual and search in this Forum for posts by RB Gardener
These posts are referred to older versions of the 3DW, however, you will learn a lot
