Hey guys,I'm currently trying to model a glass railing with a steel shoe that will be embedded into the concrete.So far I've been successful and it worked out fairly well. I've used a rail to model the glass panels and ballusters for the divisions in it. I've also done up two custom posts to cap off and finish the ends.It looked good enough; however when i tried to implement it into the model on a slope, it didn't work. It turns out that the glass rail that i've used as a panel when sloped extends past the bottom rail that I've used as the shoe. Once this happens all ballusters become invalid and none are created.Does anyone have any suggestions so that i can work this out? I've seen quite a few people mention that a solid glass railing isn't possible and I've been able to work past that, just need to figure out how to get it to work on a slope.

Attached is the project file I've been using to test it in.

ThanksMike

Yes i did, its basically just a long rectangular profile, the problem occurs when it encounters s slope, instead of sloping the profile it must be drawing it as if it was completly vertical, thus extending it past the bottom railbut again, i'm not 100% sure on that

Your answer should be no - you did not.  There in is your problem.

I used the 'Profile - Rail.rft' template, unless you're referring to another template file I believe I did create it via the correct template for railings

The template needed is for panels - Railing is a generic and a specific term.  You used the profile template for the rail.

I've actually already tried to do it the 'right' way, using panels but I ran into several problems such as the panels wouldn't change size and i'd have gaps at the ends which unforunately in my case unacceptable... The method I used is basically a work around, one that doesn't seem to be working very well.My overall goal was to have a simple glass rail, no gaps, and mounted via a shoe embedded in the concreteDo you have any suggestions for me if i were to use panels instead to eliminate the gaps and to have everything fit well

When you are doing special railings, these can get tricky.  You can try using more than one railing at the same location and multiple railings to complete the run.  One railing having your panels only and another having posts and rails.  All depends on what you are trying to do. Sometimes an in-place family is better.
