Construction Plans: How to Create a Pool Cross Section

When you need a swimming pool cross section for your permit plans, it’s easy to draw one in the Construction Markup stage.

To begin, go to the Construction Markup stage.

1. In an open space on the grid, select the general markup layer and draw the side profile cross section.

In this example, the pool has a total length of 30 ft. The deep end is 8 ft and the shallow end, 3 ft.

Draw side profile

2. Next, round the corners of the pool shell with the Smooth Tool and use the Measure Tool to display important measurements:

3. Customize the color, line styles, and fill patterns under Object Styles in the Panel:

4. Save the cross section to the construction library as a symbol to insert in future projects.
