How can I adjust my Fencing so that it is no longer the default white picket fence style?


Modifying the Fencing is easy to accomplish is Home Designer by applying Fencing Panels.


To creating fencing

  1. In floor plan view, select Build> Fencing> Straight Fencing , and then click and drag to create a segment of fence.

  2. Next, using the Select Objects tool, select your newly placed fence, and click on the Open Object  edit tool.

    For the purposes of this example, we used the Basket Weave fence style from the library content.

  6. Finally, take a 3D Camera view to see the results.
