    Railing tool. All verticals are ballusters (one balluster for the posts, another for the spikes). All horizontals are rails by profile. Bottom is larger rectangular rail.

          Gates? I would model the gates using the generic model.rft or the site.rft. Just place them where you need them.

            Since they're really a wall, I'd actualy model them as such, sketch the railings between each end post (which I might also be tempted to model as architectural columns) and host them to a level (offset from the wall's top face) so the railing's vertical bars (as balusters) don't need a fake hosting rail (or offset) to start them at.


            It's a shame you can't define rails that follow a change in direction in the vertical - then you could build the gates out a mirrored length of railing drawn to the length of the leaf. Then there was that natty beam-system trick for creating sketch-edited profiles using columns (as balusters) and beams (as rails) - but neither address the need for 2D symbols in plan - and would need management of regular instances with model groups acting as types. So probably a generic model would suffice, but you'd want to be sure to switch it to a door category before using it if you want to schedule it as a door. Albeit an external one. A gate at that. But we do. :thumbsup:
