Hi,

 

Does anyone know how to place face based light fixture under staircase landing??

I'm having mounting problem under staircase landing. Can't even find hosting surface by " pick new".

hi gh_ar,

 

Thanks a lot for ur reply. Really appreciate it.

 

I've tried ur method. But the problem is my light fixtures are hosted families and when i pick surface of under staircase landing.. it said can't find appropiate surface to host.

 

in edit family, hosted family does have 'work-plane based' to check.

 

is there any other way to solve for hosted light fixture under staircase landing?

try to create a reference plane with elevation corresponds to U/S of stair landing. When you insert your fixture, under PLACEMENT choose "place on work plane" and choose the reference plane you created.
