Here's the situation... There is a flight of stairs that starts at the Main Floor Level, continues to the Upper Main Floor Level, and ends at the Balcony Level.  The flight makes a u-turn at each level and and at a landing (one landing between each level...)...The stairs are enclosed by an outer-perimeter wall and divided by an inner-perimeter wall....The outer-perimeter railings turned out fine but, where the railing follows the inner-wall its difficult to make a smooth transition from one rail to the next... Here are my questions...      It seems like a railing can only make one u-turn and then has to terminate, meaning that you have to start a new railing to continue up the stairs...is this accurate?  If so, is creating a custom, curved baluster/post the solution for making the rails appear like one continuous rail?      The Tangent and Angle Joins make an awkward transition where the rail turns the corner...is this typical? Does it imply that there is an issue with the stairs or landing?  I have worked the baluster and rail properties, the Joins, the Landing Adjustment,  and editing the railing "sketch-path," and have not found a satisfying solution.  That's what I'm working on.  Any solutions or advice???

This has been a constant problem for Revit users, and while I'm not sure a solution has been presented yet, I believe some workarounds have been discussed over on the AUGI boards.  You may wan tto get a membership (free) over there and search teh Revit Architecture forums to see what you can find.  I can't remember exactly where it is in the forums but I know I've seen it being discussed over there.

Need help? I'm probably in my chat room!

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is never get involved in a land war in asia, but only slightly less well known is this! Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!
