Im in revit 2015 and cant figure out how to get the ballusters to extend to ground past the last step of a stair. Code requires the railing to continue 1 tread length past the stair at the same angle and 1 tread length flat. To do this we simply extend the railing sketch 1 foot past the last tread, break it, and add another foot in the sketch for the flat section. Problem is, there is no tread beneath the 1 foot extension, so the balusters dont have anything to host to and just continue down at the angle of the rail. anyone know of a fix for this other than creating another tread of the stair at the same level as the landing? The stair lands on an existing slab, and it would be really nice not to have to make another tread or landing there to trick revit into correctly forming the ballusters. thanks!

You have more problems than this.... I see that your ballusters are 'creeping' towards the riser.   Assign your railing as ballusters per tread rather than a fixed distance.

 

You could make that ballusters long enoug to bury themselves in the stais or ground.

 

You cound also create one end balluster that is actually 3 ballusters and that balluster can have an independed base offset.

Thanks for the reply, I am aware of the creeping ballusters, our railing family is designed around a 1' tread depth, and this is the only one in the model that has a slightly greater than 1' depth. I guess I will just extend the balusters the full depth of the riser and call it a day. Doesnt realy seem worth making another baluster family for.

 

thanks again!

It might not be exactly as your picture, but if you add a piece of rail at the bottom in the same sketch mode (instead of extending) and play with the top rail/handrail properties, you can get it to meet the code.
