Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding railings to stairs, part of Revit Architecture 2014 Essential Training.
Railings usually are created automatically when you create stairs.…So, that's usually the most common way to work with them, but you can also create…railings yourself. So I'm here in a file called railings, and…I'm going to zoom in on this area of the plan right here.…And I have this open to below space, and the stair comes up to this little balcony…here and walks around. So, obviously we would need some sort of a…guard rail, over in this general location. It's pretty easy to do, it's just a simple…sketch based operation. What we'll do is go to the Architecture…tab and we'll click on the Railing tool. Now all you have to do is click the…default tool but if you open up the drop down it's the Sketch Path that we're…going to use here for our guard rail. And this takes me to sketch mode, and we…can draw railings in really any shape we want.…
But one thing that's a little different about this sketch then some of the others…that we've seen is, you can even draw and open or a closed path here.…In this case we want an open path, because we just need to do an L shaped railing…

Q: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:
Chapter 3 - Accessing multi-user worksharing projects
Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
