Adding Pool Stairs

To add pool stairs:

1.   Click Add Pool Stairs.

2.   Draw the outline of the top step. Press Backspace to remove the last point. Press Esc to cancel.

3.   When finished, click the starting point to close the outline. Right-click at the last point when finished.

When adding the pool stairs, just draw the outline of the top step; the remaining steps are added automatically using the rise, run, and number of steps properties.

Pool stairs are designed to be used with swimming pools, not by themselves. They automatically use the same material as the swimming pool.

You do not need to be very careful when drawing the part of the outline that is outside of the swimming pool. Only the part that overlaps the inside of the swimming pool is important; the rest is removed automatically by Realtime Landscaping Pro. In the following example, notice how the pool stairs outline overlaps the pool.

Tips:

      Use the depth property to set the depth of the first step relative to the top of the pool. For example, setting the depth to 1' (0.3 m) causes the top of the first step to be exactly 1' below the top of the swimming pool.

      You may need to adjust the depth of your swimming pool to match the size of your steps. See Adding a Swimming Pool  for details.
