stair railing types

Recommended Posts

   I am trying to create modern stair rail such as cable or glass. I cant seem to do it with half walls and such.  If I select balusters in fencing it shows as perpendicular to the stairs. How do I create glass or cable railing? I'm using HDA 2014

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click My Settings, then Signature on the left.

Home Designer Pro has the ability to draw stair railings manually (Check " Follow Stairs" on the Rail Style Tab), Architectural does NOT have this ability. Using it you can have any rail style or panels in your LIbrary Browser.

Using a Half Wall, place it a 1" or so on the stair.   Open the specification box and make your changes, to get the glass, change it from solid to panel

 

and then click materials>panel, click select material and change to glass.  To get the cable rails you have to use a object from 3d warehouse and then edit the object in Sketchup.
