    Adding architectural railing to linked structural model?

    First time on this forum as a member, but I have been here a number of times as I try to learn Revit.

    I'm in the middle of a large project and we made an agreement early on with our structural engineer (outside consultant) that their office would model the stair structure and we would "attach" our railing model to it. Well, after hours of trying to do this, I just can't seem to figure it out. Of course, it's the classic case of getting the host, but I can't seem to select their stair to use it as the host, so my railing is horizontal and stuck on the floor level. Any thoughts or suggestions? Some have suggested that I model a stringer to match theirs, but I'm hoping there is another way to do this.

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I would just copy the stair from their model in to your own then put the railing on it.

    What you can do is tab to the stair in the linked model then hit ctrl+c then paste same place or paste current view.

      create a sloped floor at necessary height/angle within the stair structure, then place your railing on it. you may need to set working plane first, (i can't remember right now after 3 glasses of red wine) you can then hide the floor element if needed. :wine:

        You should be able to use the Reset Host command and then tab to the stair even if it's linked...
