    Adding Multiple Balusters In Railing

    Nothing I'm trying works. I'm sure there's an easy solution.

    I created a railing to use as a fence. It has 2X12 railings top and bottom, with 2X12 "posts" on the sides. The intermediate balusters and rails are 1/2" x 1/2", creating a 6"x6" grid. So far, so good.

    I also need to add a 4x12 baluster every 10' max along the fence line. I can't get it to work. What's worse is that's just a max dimension. If the fence line is only 16', then it will split it in half at 8'. It just can't go over 10' spacing. I've shown them in blue.

    How do I do that in a railing?

    I would use a 2 x 4 in the design instead of a 4 x 12 Unless there is a structural reason to do so
    In terms of how to do that sorry but I'm still a noob in the realm of Railings and most things revit haha
    Look forward to the answer by one of the Revit Masters

      Well, you aren't the one signing the checks! :laugh:

      Actually, what it is is a (2) 2x12's sandwiching the wire fence part (the 6x6 grid). That's what holds it all together. Around 5000 acres. This fence will cost more than my house! :laugh:

          Thankfully I'm only showing the entry gate. The rest they can make up in the field. Literally. :laugh:

            Is this what you mean.
            I think the images will tell you more than me explaining.

            edit
            select the baluster in baluster placement properties and Duplicate..

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

              Nope. That's the result I'm getting. I need the 6x6 grid still, along with the 4X12 every 10'.

                Just add the ballusters that are missing (you will have a LOT!) and offset them the distance that you need

                Just imagine the 2 x 12 framing this thing

                  Think a way to do this is create a family profile, (for the mesh). Insert into railings. Give the profile a hatch to represent the wire, set transparency to 100%. Should work I will try and post file later if still having trouble.

                    So the 4x12 could end up anywhere within the grid, mid panel, third panel, anywhere....?
