    Handrail

    Hi,

    I am working on a corner handrail and faced difficulty in placing the posts. Is there a way to control the distance of posts. I need the posts to be placed @ 3" from the corner and at the junctions. And also i need a post at the centre of each panel. I have attached what i wanted , can anybody help me.

    Thanks

    Rails in Revit are not particularly user friendly.
    On some occasions we have resorted to creating railing's without the posts. Then create your posts separately as an in-place family.
    Or you could try using a curtain wall rather than rail system. This way you have great control over where the posts can go.

      You could create a custom baluster, containing two balusters (Create a really fat one, and split it into two with a void), and use that for corners and start/end balusters.

        You can play with splitting the sketch line where you want each post and selecting the option to break the pattern at each segment end. You may need to create a second rail type at the corner with no balusters. I could never get corners to work right when using that method.

          Hi

          I tried and i am not getting the corner post on both the sides. Is it possible to get the corner baluster on both the sides.


          Thanks. . .

              Hi,

              Some how i did my first stair handrail in revit. Is is there a way to trim the rail which extends beyond the starting baluster.

              Thanks

                You don't trim the railings. What you have done with your railing is you have put a setback (space) on your start baluster.
                Go to Edit Baluster Placement menu and in the space feild imput 1/2 the baluster thickness, this will move the baluster to the begining of your railing.
                To move the railing up the stringer, select the railing, select Edit Path. Grab the end node and adjust length to suit.
                To get the top railing to extend past the begining baluster is another issue all together and and has to be made as a baluster (rail extension)

                If it ain't broke, fix it till it is.
