railings aligning with exterior corners

Recommended Posts

Hello Again

I'm having trouble getting deck railings to align with exterior walls.

Top shows a custom wall type for sips. I set the siding to zero cuz I'm tired of dimensions, etc always picking up that snap. Bottom left is siding-6 and bottom right is siding-4. Regardless of how I try to move it, the wall always wants to not be aligned.

And I have no idea what the angled line is all about. 

 

I think it might have something to do with the main layer settings but every combo that I try seems to result in failure:/

 

Thanks

Not sure about the angle lines but you may have your snap units set too large and you just cant get anywhere close.  So try setting your snap units temporarily to 1/16 or some small amount and get the railing close then move it in with your arrow keys.

 

You might also set your siding-4 main layer to be the studs.  Or try the point to point tool if you are aligning with main layer.

 

Works fine in X8.

I'm an idiot.

I was using "Straight Railing" instead of "Straight Deck Railing"
