Baluster Panels - Can they be drawn with sweeps?

I have a stair railing I am trying to create and have not had any success (see Attached image).  It is round bars with a couple different branches hanging out.

 

Is this something that would be easiest to create as generic model and nest inside the Baluster Panel family?  I am looking for options or suggestions to get this accomplished.

 

Thanks for your help and thoughts.

A few approaches to consider:


1.  Baluster Panel Family


Extrusion in Baluster Panel family, or nested generic model in baluster panel family.  It might take some adjustment between the project and family, but this is definitely a possibility.  If the railing geometry is curved or breaks to many landings this method may make sense more than #2.

 

2.  Model this as In-Place Component in Project


If the stair is relatively finalized, you may consider creating an in-place component in the project.  You should be able to set the active work plane to a face on the railing, and then model this condition as needed.  This may be the easiest method to create this type of geometry.

 

I hope some of this may be helpful; if you have any follow-up questions let us know.

 

Thank you,
