    What is the best way to model this type of wall?

    Hi, I'd like to know what's the best way to do this type of wall. I used stacked wall, but when it comes to staircase, it doesn't work.
    As there are many these type of wall in the entire building, I'd like to have it as light-weight in file size as possible. Thanks in advance.

    My initial thought was a rail with a "T" profile for railing/top rail family, to save having to edit the profiles of walls all over the place, but a quick test results in some pretty undesirable joins/junctions. Maybe an "l" profile for the railing and then sweep picking 3D edges for the top lip? (Could join a couple of different sweeps in order to get the junction seen in the foreground of photo 1.) Depends on your patience levels with Revit rails I guess

    As Robin already said you can model it as a wall and a wall sweep, and a second workaround is possibly by modeling it as a railing with two profiles, that will do the task more easy for multiple stairs, but as a drawback you need to consider the quantities, HTH

    thank you everyone for taking time to respond. I'll use the wall and wall sweep method.
