How to put rails on flat roof

Recommended Posts


What is the best way to draw rails/balustrade system above the flat front roof in the attached pic?  Everything I try, I can't seem to get the rails to display. Thanks in advance for the help

I'm probably wrong (since I'm not a CA guru) but I'd probably model it like a 2nd floor deck/balcony/or porch.  You'd have to modify it in either case I'm pretty sure to get the roofing and what ever finish for the roof (you can do that in the structure tab for the floor) and of course then you just add the rail/balustrade as you see fit. Give it a try (maybe save a copy of your plan to experiment/work on with this idea).  I sure hope I'm not way off, regardless this will give you some practice until the REAL CA experts provide the correct (best) answer.

Bob has it correct.  Forget about it being a "Roof" and just draw the Railing Walls you want.  If the "Floor/Roof Edge" needs to extend further out you can draw "Invisible Walls" at that location.
