Changing the Top & Bottom Rail Profile

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to change the profile of the top and/or bottom rail in Home Designer Pro 2020? I don't see that option anywhere in the railing specification. I would like to change the top rail on my railing to a square profile instead of the round one displayed in the image below. Thank you!!

I see you mentioned Pro 2020 ...

 

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) 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 keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

I have updated my signature line to reflect the Home Designer Pro 2020. I have watched the "railing walls" video listed below. In the video, under the "railing defaults", there is a tab for "rails", where he is able to to change the top, bottom, and middle rail profiles. Is this possible in Home Designer Pro 2020? I noticed in the video that the narrator appears to be using Chief Architect Premier X6.

That video is for Chief, not Home Designer.

 

I see no direct control over rail profile in Home Designer.

 

It looks like from your image above you are using Panels. If so, you may be able to build a railing in another program like SketchUp and import it for use as a railing panel.
