Railing on Retaining Wall

Recommended Posts

I would like to add rod iron railing on top of the side retaining wall, please see attached images.  I have read the tutorial demonstrating adding railing above a terrain wall.  However, this is not working in my situation because I can not modify the top of a terrain wall to be horizontal.  It seems I must use a retaining wall to achieve the horizontal top.  I would appreciate any tips to add the railing.  Thank you.  Version Home Designer Pro 2018

The only way to do this currently is to place the railings on top of the walls as symbols directly from the Library Browser as symbols (not railing walls), In future versions this may not continue but is true now.

I was able to fake it this time by adding a 60" thick, narrow terrain feature along the inside of the wall and placing the fence on the terrain feature.  The ability to place the fence on a retaining wall in future versions would be welcomed.  Often my terrain is uneven on both sides of the wall, so this trick wouldn't work.  Thank you for your assistance.

Please take a minute and fill out your Signature -- see below. It helps me and others quickly find this info, and you won't need to remember to add it somewhere.

 

There are some tricks to dealing with putting a railing over the wall. If you will attach your plan file, I'll have a look. Close Pro before attaching.

 

You want the retaining walls to be as drawn, but want a railing above the shorter ones?

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 Account Settings, then Signature on the left. Doing so makes it always available, and this info is often key to providing a good suggestion

Draw a wall on top of the retaining wall. I used an interior wall.

Drag the bottom of the wall up in elevation or 3D view.

Open the wall and change it to a Railing Wall. Change settings as required.
