Curved Railing at Staircase

Recommended Posts

This has been brought up a few times and I just had a face-slapping moment...of-course there is a very easy way of doing this!

 

Simply place a curved railing on top of your staircase. Go to the staircase dbx and at the "rail style" tab, scroll down to "build from" and check the box marked "Follow Stairs." Next, on the same tab under "Specify Railing" check "Panels."

A very simple wainscot panel can be created by placing the "raised panel doors" cabinet door symbol into a plan and pulling a 3d view. In 3d go to the "Tools" menu and scroll down to the "Symbol" drop-down menu and select "create a symbol"

Select the drop down menu and select "millwork" for your new symbol. This will add it to the user library as millwork, which can then be applied to your curved railing as a wainscotting. Go to the railing dbx and scroll to the "Newels/Balusters" tab and under "Panels" select from Library and find the millwork you just created. Make sure to set your newel spacing to something like 16" and your newel size to 0"

Here is a simple result which took 5 minutes to create:
