Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding extensions to railings, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- In this movie, we're gonna look at…the railing extensions feature.…We can take our railing objects,…and we can build in top rails and handrails,…and these top rails and handrails…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 gonna zoom in down here at the bottom.…
And I've got two different railings here.…And so to set this 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 gonna 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.…Click OK, and then I'm gonna select this one,…

Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
