Adding an extension to railings can be crucial when meeting building codes. Revit Architecture has a neat feature by which you can define any code requirements and then automatically adjust your existing railing design to fit. However, using the tool does take some care to avoid confusion between components. Learn how to add extensions to railings in Revit Architecture 2015 with this online video.
…In this movie, we're going to look at the railing extensions feature.…We could take our railing objects, and we can build in top rails and hand rails.…And these top rails and hand rails can have automatically generated extensions.…Those extensions will allow us to build in code requirements.…Such as the distance of an extension that's required…by the building code, or adding a tread depth…and so on, to the extensions of our railings…and have it take place automatically when we draw them.…So, I'm in a file here called Railing Extensions,…and I'm going to zoom in down here at the bottom.…
And I've got two different railings here.…And so to set us up, what I…want to do is actually build two different railing styles.…So that we can do one that does returning back to the post of the…railing, and we'll do another example with the other one that returns to the wall.…I'm going to select this railing right here, and…go to Edit Type, and duplicate it, and…I'll call this one Handrail Pipe and I'll just add the word Post at the end.…

Q: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
