Adding a Pool Seat

Applies to: Plus Pro Architect

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.   From the Swimming Pool tab, click Add Pool Seat.

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 Enter.

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

4.   Set Depth to the distance between the top of the seat and the top of the pool.


Pool seats are created by simply drawing the outline of the seat and setting its depth. Pool seats are designed to only function inside swimming pools; they cannot be used as standalone objects. By default, pool seats use the material of the swimming pool they are added to. However, you can use a different material if desired.

As shown 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 used; the rest will be trimmed away automatically.

Matching the Outline of an Existing Swimming Pool

The steps for creating a Pool Seat that matches the outline of your swimming pool are the same as Pool Stairs. See Adding Pool Stairs for details.
