      There is an extra http:// in the front of the link. Delete that and off you go.

        Start a new railing panel family, and create the pattern you want there (via extrusions, sweeps, etc.). Load that into the project where you need the railing, then create a new railing type with the horizontal rails set up as you need them and with the new panel you just made set as the baluster. You'll have to play around with the start/end/spacing/etc. to get everything the way you want, but it's definitely doable.

        Good luck.

          Hi Juan,

          If you are on subscription, Phil Read presented a talk on this exact subject a year or two back. You will find it at http://au.autodesk.com/?nd=class&session_id=5380

          Cheers
