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.
