View Full Version : Deck Plan Software
6th Aug 2007, 05:45 PM
Does anyone have any software that I could get / buy / download for desnigning decks. I can find heaps with google for floorplan type stuff, but I want to draw my own plans. I am looking for somehting that lets you peice together timber framing in 3d, but with pre-made "bits" like joists etc. I have all the span tables, i just want something so I dont have to draw it by hand.
I tried some cad stuff, but it got too complicated fast.

you might find this link usefull
Ive found most of these at harvey norman including
Punch! Professional Home Design Suite Platinum 10 (http://www.consumersearch.com/www/software/home-design-software/retailers.html)
Most of these programs do more than just decks , but I think they
are the best you can get at this point in time, with a reasonable price

The link below has some excellent 2D/3D modeling software that has all and more of the features you require. I believe it is based on a CAD platform but all the shape modeling has already been done for you so all you do is drop and drag the items you require.
I used it for my deck and landscape design. Got an engineer to check and rubber stamp then submitted to certifier with no problems.
