Adding a Pool Seat

The Pool Seat object is used to create benches, platforms, and tanning ledges. Pool seats can be placed underwater at any depth required, or can rise slightly above the water line to provide a dry surface.

To add a pool seat:

1.   Click the Add Pool Seat button that is found near the top of the screen under the Swimming Pool tab.

2.   Draw the outline of the pool seat by clicking the left mouse button to add points. Press the Backspace key to remove the last point added, and press the Esc key to cancel. If you would like to input the distance and angle manually, place at least one point and then press the Enter key.

3.   To finish drawing the pool seat, place the last point on top of the first point. Alternately, right-click to place the last point.

Pool seats are drawn by simply creating the outline of the seat and assigning it a depth. Pool seats are designed to only function inside swimming pools; they cannot be used as standalone objects. Pool seats automatically assume the material of the swimming pool they are added to.

As shown in the picture below, it is not a problem for part of the pool seat’s outline to extend beyond the pool’s perimeter. Only the portion of the pool seat that is within a swimming pool will be shown.

      The height of the pool seat is determined by its Depth property. A pool seat’s depth determines the distance from the top of the seat to the top of the swimming pool or spa.
