Railing...

Recommended Posts

How can I get this railing to have a center newel without it reaching to the beam BUT I want the outer newels to be post to beam like shown in the picture?   I understand we can space newels out on the DBX but I need one in the center for support I just don't want that one reaching all the way to the beam like the rest.  I hope theres some option I can accomplish this.


Thanks!

You can adjust the spacing to eliminate the one in the center. Then place one in the center manually, making in the height you want. This manually placed newel will be separate from your railing.

Aonther option is to connect a short invisible wall segment using a 'room divider' wall type perpendicular to the railing. Then reverse the layer direction of one side of the railing. It should create a newel at that junction. Simply center that wall segment in the room, or dimension it for a more specific placement. The newel would be placed without the invisible wall segment, just by reversing the layer direction, but the invisible wall segment gives you a simple 'slide' to move that connection where you'd like it. Of course, your railing must be reversible!

If you have just those 4 to do I would just use a P-Solid and copy and paste to each section , however if it is a Rail Style you use a lot I would likely make myself a Railing Panel and save it to my Library.

Great!  Thanks you all for your support and replies.  I will give those a try and see what results I can get.  Im hoping that in future releases of chief they will greatly address an updated stairs and railing builder.  At this point were dealing with nearly the same stair/railing tool weve had since 2007 and earlier... time for a huge upgrade!

 

Thanks again!
