hi...

I'm trying to do a simple parking garage and i'm using sloped floors instead of ramps. i forget the reason why i did this, but there definitely was a reason for using floors.  i think it had something to do with hosting the parking spaces onto the sloped floors and they couldn't be hosted to a ramp.. anyway, i'm trying to add railings and they would align with the angle of the slope.. anyone know what i'm doing wrong or can Revit not do this very simple task

thanks!

Your railing sketch line has to be on the floor then if you want the railing over the floor edge, you use the offset setup for your rails and ballusters.  Make sure to assign the host for the railing.

It is on the floor, but it wont align. i actually tried opening up a new file, made a floor, added a railing to the edge, sloped the floor using the"Modify sub elements command, raised the edge 1 foot, and the railing stayed parallel to the ground plane and not the sloped floor, and all the railing settings were set to Host.  im starting to think this cant be done using floors

If you are only raising one corner of the slab, you are creating a warped surface and the railing will not respond to the warp.  Railing need a consistant slope to be able to be hosted.  If you use the old fashioned slop arrow within the floor sketch you will be better off.

If the slab is truely warped, then you will have to use a different method to do the 'railings'.  You could use curtain walls with round mullions, create a 'fake' floor to host the railings to, or develop a custom family.

AWESOME!!! that worked. i think adding the slope arrow was the key. thank you so much, that was super helpful.  

for the record, i was just sloping in one direction so it was a simple ramp, not a warped surface.  Thanks again
