Hi all, I have this rail that is following the slope of my stair however the vertical rails are extending past the bottom horizontal baluster. You can see this in the picture I have attached. Please let me know how to get my rails to die into the baluster. THANKS!!!!!!!

It looks to me like your ballasters 'Base' it set to the 'Host' with an offset. The host being the stairs.

 

Change the Ballaster 'Base' to the 'Bottom Rail' and that should fix you up. The landing looks ok but that is just a coincidense.

 

See image.

Thanks for your response but it is set to host with a 3 1/2" offset, which is what we want, but the rails are not stopping Sad

First of all are you talking about the rails (horizontal) or the ballasters vertical)?

 

I am assuming you are talking about the ballasters becasue the image you posted needs the ballasters to stop at the bottom rail.

 

If you are setting the ballaster Base to Host with a 3 1/2" offset that's exactly what you have. They are following the stair treads with a 3.5" offset.

 

However if you actually like the ballasters where they are and want to adjust the rail extensions then 'break' the rail in the sketch closer to the stair nosing. That may be what you are looking for. Always break / split the rail when even it goes from sloping to horizontal and you can control the transitional / pivot point.

I tried that a few times and still nothing.... How do I "trim" the verticals at the sloped bottom rail?

As oth dgcad said and you said.  The ballusters (verticals) are doing what you set.  They are offset off the host (the stairs) and therefore they reflect the steps.  If you want them to end at the rail then set it that way.

Yeah I get that it is a 3 1/2" offset from the treads because that is what I want to see at the flat parts of the railings.... And if i do a separate sloped rail at just that one section it does not connect right with the other rails.... SO my question is how do I get those verticals to stop at the sloped bottom rail without having to affect the rest of the rail system i.e. change the 3 1/2" offset of the entire rail system. And if that does mean creating an individual sloped rail how do I get it to connect correctly with the other railings?? I just want to "trim" the verticals at the bottom rails while keeping the 3 1/2" offset of the rail system as a whole

Figured it out..... It wasnt working cause it was going off the "host" and not the bottom rail with an offset of "0"

That was my very first reply.
"Change the Ballaster 'Base' to the 'Bottom Rail' and that should fix you up" I even attached an image of what to do.
If you are going to ask the question, Please read the replies.

Whoa - back off tinnintu.  Don't you think you are the one being rude here. 

 

DG was correct in stating that he had given you the answer if you had read his post.  When you re-posted after DG's initial answer and it was obvious that you had not read it, I too pointed out that DG had given you the answer. 

 

We are trying to help but we can't make you use our help but I do ask that you watch your comments.

Hi, 

I need help editing the railings. I don't have the option "edit railing". I'm not sure if it is because the rail structure is non continuous, but I can't not change it to continuous either. Any solutions?
