That looks weird. Was that a railing family?

Please up load it.

I think the attached file is what you want.

You might exceed the maximum size of the file allowed for upload.

 

You can open a blank new file, just copy and paste that railing only, which will cut the size of the file down to less than 2mb; then you’ll be able to upload it.

 

Please check the baluster placement, to see if all “Top offset” are zero. You might miss to select ““Top” to “Top Rail Element”, in step 3 below.

 

Here is the way how I created mine from scratch in Revit 2013:

 

1.       Start a new project without using any templates. Draw a railing, pick it and click “Edit Type” in “Properties”, click “Edit” for “Rail Structure”, or “Baluster Placement”; and you will find that no railing “Profile” neither “Baluster Family” in them. Now go to the Revit library, open families “Railings/Balusters/Baluster-Square”, “Railings/Supports/Support-Metal-Circular”, “Profiles/Stairs/Circular Handrail”, “Profiles/Stairs/Rectangular Handrail”, and load them into the project.

 

2.       Go back to the project, now you will see “Circular Handrail 1” “, and “Rectangular Handrail 2”x2” “. Right click “Circular Handrail 1” “, duplicate it, rename to “0.375” “, and double click it change the Diameter to 0,375”. Use the same way to create Rectangular Handrail 2”x4”, and change its dimension to 1.5”x3.5”. Now you can duplicate the 2” square baluster to create 3.5” square baluster, and you will see the “w1” changed to 5.5” automatically, which create voids at both ends of that baluster, which cuts the balusters per the slope of the stair.

 

3.       Now you can go back to the rail you drew in step 1, pick it, click “Edit Type”,  click “Edit” on the right hand column of “Rail Structure”, a new window will pop-up, for Rail 1 click “Profile” use pull down manual select 0.375”; then move your mouse to the left most and click 1, you will select the entire row, then use “Duplicate” tab on the bottom to create 9 of them, and change the Height to 4” increment. Now click “Edit” for Baluster, change “Baluster Family to Baluster-Square: 4”, “Top” to Top Rail Element. On the bottom of the same window, change the Baluster Family for all posts to Baluster-Square 4”.

 

4.       In the Family “Railings”, at the bottom, you will see “Top Rail Type” under it, rename the second “Top Rail Type” under it to “4x2”, which will be your top rail, double click it, in new pop-up window, move the mouse to the right hand column of “Profile”, select “Rectangular Handrail 4x2” from the pull-down manual. Now go back to pick the railing again, open the property window,  edit the “Rail”, on the bottom, click “Insert “, a “New Rail(1)” will be added, move it to the very top, rename it to “Top Rail”, set the height at 42”, then change the “Profile” to “Rectangular Handrail: 4”x2”.
