Is there any way to make decking so that it's not right angles to the edges of the deck. I basically want to have my decking at a 45 degree angle. I can't seem to figure out how to do that.

Hi there,

Hi there,

Thank you for providing the information.

If I understand correctly your question, you have a deck and, for the floor, you wish to use boards with a 45° angle, correct?

The program's textures can be rotated 90° (using the material modifier) but not 45°. So, in this case, you will need to import a texture (file => Import => Material to library) with the 45° orientation boards. To give you an idea of the effect, go to Materials => Wood => Bambu => see the 3rd and 4th textures.

Hope this helps.

Thanks this info is helpful. I noticed that the original decking textures are PTX files. Am I correct in assuming that I would need to convert them to a PNG or something like that then rotate 45% and import it as "material"? Thanks for your help.

Hi there,

In Punch, each texture is composed by 3 files: PPV (the thumbnail), PTX (the texture) and PTI, (the information). so I don't think that is a good idea to export the PTX file.

I'd suggest that you use any image (there are many free images in the web) => open it with any image program => rotate => 45° => then go to Punch => File => import => Material to library

If you are interested, my eBook for V20 includes tutorials about textures, how to prepare the images, etc.

Hope this helps.
