    Railing Extension

    All:

    I'm having trouble with a railing extension and would appreciate your input. The extension in the pictures below is for a wall handrail. I have the extend to Wall option selected with 0'-0" on the extension distance and "Plus Tread Depth" selected. As you can see from the pictures, this produces a funky offset transition which I can't resolve. This occurs whether it is set to Miter of Fillet

    Any help is appreciated!

    Thanks,

    I use the extend to Wall option all the time and have never run into this problem. Try setting the extension distance to something minuscule like 1/32" as a possible work around.

      No dice

      Thanks for the suggestion, JGendell. I tried this and it didn't work. It is like Revit really wants to have a flat piece at the bottom of the run and doesn't like an extension which follows the slope of the stair run.

        Try to draw the extension manually in the model.

          You can manually edit the sketch line to have a "Slope". What I mean is in the path of the railing, draw a sketch line that is 1/32" long. Manually override it to be Sloped and see if that does what you are looking for.

            I tried that as well -without success. Thanks.

              Interesting. Both approaches mentioned here ones I use all the time without issue. I can't understand why they're not for you. Have you tested either approach with a new or different railing?

                Agreed.

                Could it be that the original poster is using a termination family at the intersection of the wall? I have not used termination families all that often.

                  I have tested this with our office template and the OOTB Revit commercial template. Both have the same result. This is true whether I am using terminations or not. I also made a handrail assembly from scratch in each and tested it.

                    It might be helpful to see how your path is drawn in plan and maybe a screenshot of your settings for the rail and the termination.
