In this movie, we were going to 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 thread depth…and so on, to the extensions of our railings and have it take place…automatically when we draw them. So, I am in a file here called railing…extensions and I am 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. Click OK, and I'm going to select this…
