Hello all,

I have a slight problem with my railings : I'd like to use 45° posts but with the same orientation for all the balcony. When I use my 45° family, the posts rotate with the angle of the balcony.

I tried to have a 45° lock on the family and it didn't work. I tried too to make three different parts with 2 different posts so they are aligned but then the three parts cannot be attached nicely.

Has anyone got an idea ?

Thanks for your answers !

You will have to do multiple railings.

I think you’re using wrong set up, three different parts works:

Part1: top rail only (no balusters), drawn in one sketch, three sides.

Part 2: balusters only, no top rail, front part only.

Part 3: flipped balusters, no top rail, two sides.

Top rail (part 1) will be sketched on top of the other rails, which is ok to use combination of multiple rails on top of each other if necessary.

 

Or, use Handrail with Support family as your balusters (no multiple rails necessary). Then you’ll be able to select the balusters (supports) only, unpin and flip them using space bar. Support family has to have flip control applied. Pic. below.

Thank you very much for this answer, making three parts with railings and posts separated is an excellent idea !

Glad you have it resolved. However, please don’t disregard Support family approach. It proves to be handy many times for me where baluster location needs to be manually adjusted, which is impossible with the baluster family. It’s good to keep it in your arsenal.
