    Solid railing on a curved stair

    Hi all,

    I've got a problem with a solid railing i'm trying to apply to my curved stair. I have crated a simple rectangular profile and set it as the "Rail structure Non-continuous".


    It works fine-ish when I turn the connectors off


    But when i switch the tangent joins to "Extend rails to meet" it goes a bit crazy and curves into the stair.


    And this is what happens when i edit the railing path and change the slope from "by host" to "sloped".


    I run out of ideas by now of what might be causing this issue.. I have attached the railing profile and the plan of the staircase.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    In cases like this I tend to use a wall with an edited profile

    Is there no way to make it work as an actual railing?

    I don't want to put walls where they don't belong as it will show up in a schedule (and if there are more instances of "wall railings" then creating filters for every single one will be a pain - about 15 people are working on this project).

    Thanks

    yes, totally agree, and maybe an in place railing family will be more easy to model!, regards

    Is not possible to edit a curved wall profile, but you can cut it with an in place wall void

    you can use the railing tool, you just have to tell the segments to slope and give a custom height instead of letting it decide what to do.Click image for larger version.

    However this will only work if you want a parallel piece of glass, if you want the bottom flat and the top sloped you will need to use a swept blend at the landing or a wall with its top attached to a sloped ref. plane that connects the two or as the previous poster said a void.

    Another workaround for this is to model several segments for the railing instead an unique model , various railings have the advantage to let more control, and as mentioned before it can be a combination of in place families and other techniques, regards
