Stair with landing and solid rail

Recommended Posts

I want to create a 2-section stair with a mid-landing wrapping along a 45-degree wall on the right side and with a solid rail on the left side.  The Interior Staircase Specification for the railing does not provide for a "solid" rail as the railing specification provides.  I've tried using a wall-railing to follow the left side of the stair which has successfully created the sloping solid railing along the stair, but unfortunately at the landing, the railing defaults back to a railing off the originating floor.  Any solutions?  Attached is a perspective and plan with the left railing wall adjacent to the stair method showing the problem at the landing.

While we are thinking about this, please add your title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (10, 2015 etc) to your signature.

Some have capabilities others do not, so help needs to focus on what you are able to do.

Have you tried editing the walls in camera (3D) view?

Break each railing wall where the landing is,  then raise each landing wall to the height that is needed.

I've cut the railing walls at the landing, but there is no railing height setting in the railing specification box, and the railing can not be raised in 3D view.  I'd appreciate any further thoughts on how to resolve this.

Using Home Deisgner Pro 2015.

If you broke the railing wall correctly, the wall dbx of the 2 landing walls can be opened (in 2d) and the height of each rail can be changed.

Typical spots where things don't blend together.

 

Used 2 railings to make the corner.

Eric and JoAnn - Thank you both for trying to help me out with the solid railing at the landing.  You both got it, and I'm still struggling.  Eric - You can find the original plan if you open my original pdf attachment and scroll down to the second image.  I understand your comment that the transition from either the upper stair section or the lower lower stair section of sloped railings may not transition smoothly to the horizontal railing at the landing, but I'm not going to worry about that detail.  I'm still unable to figure out how both of you were able to raise the 2 different sections of railing at the landing.  I've attached another clip after starting over, deleting both sections of railing at the landing, then I went into the landing specification and checked the box "no railing on selected edge" (wondering if that may have caused some conflict with the separate railing section, and then re-drew both railings again, without success.  I delected the one-section of railing for the purpose of the attached image which only shows the one section of railing at the landing.  If I can get one-section to work, I'll then understand to create the second section.  JoAnn - I do not understand what you mean by "dbx".  ??

 

Any further advice how you were able to raise the railings at the landing?

 

Thank you, again.

Jo Ann, You also mentioned working in 2d, so I tried with the cross section view shown in my last post's attachment.  I'm not clear about what you mean by "in 2d".

I believe Jo Ann and I did the same thing.

 

There are 4 walls on that side of the stair. The upper and lower walls are set to follow the stairs. These are just railings and may be raised by changing the Railing Height under Newels/Balusters. These two walls stop at the edge of the landing.

 

Draw a railing wall along each side of the landing, then raise them to the height you need.

 

I should have been more specific in my previous post. Ask again if this isn't clear.

Wonderful.  The half-height wall with the height adjustment is the trick.  Thank you both for all your persistence and help for me.  Case closed.
