Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding railings to stairs, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- 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 gonna 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 guardrail…over in this general location.…It's pretty easy to do.…It's just a simple sketch-based operation.…
What we'll do is we'll 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 gonna use here for our guardrail.…And this takes me into sketch mode.…And we can draw railings in really any shape we want.…The one thing that's a little different about this sketch…than some of the others that we've seen is…you can either draw an open or a closed path here.…In this case, we want an open path…

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.
