    Curved Railings with Panels

    Forgive me if this has been addressed before, but I have not yet found a definitive answer. We have not done any curved railings in a while, so I was surprised when I discovered that the technique of using a tall thin profile for a top rail or non-continuous railing component does not appear to work for curved railings as it used to in version 2017. So how are people modeling curved railings with panels? Is everyone now using baluster panels (), or are we modeling in-place swept blends? Is there another way to do this?

    You need to edit the path of the railing and extend the upper leg 1 tread length, and turn of any automatic infill settings. Curved Railings with Panels-staircurved.pngCurved Railings with Panels-stairround2.png

    Thank you for the clues, Scott, but I am still missing something. The attached shows a rail modeled which only contains one non-continuous rail element. Clearly the geometry is still wrong. I get similar results when using only a top rail element for the panel. I have tried so many different options that I am not seeing something obvious.
