Angled Rope light under stair rail?

Recommended Posts

I have tried looking up videos and maybe my search simply did not bring up the right video, but I want to place a rope light in my wall railing on stairs. It seems there is no option to angle the rope light, is this correct?

Hi Rachel,

 

Search for "rope light" - there are several topics on file in the forum

Hi Doug, 

 

Thanks- I did do this search and did not find a relevant response. 

Depending on the type of rendering style you are using, the simplest method will be to place a 3D molding in section view and give it a material that is 'emissive'.

Another less simple way would be to use 1 'added light', adjust its light settings, then replicate it using the 'transform/replicate object' tool. You can replicate the added light in the x,y,z direction so it will follow your stairs...you'll just need to confirm the rise and run of your stairs to make sure its accurate. I'd suggest using the exact same numbers so you have 1 light per tread. Or change the ratio to your liking.

Does that make sense?

My first thought, but not sure how it compares to a rope light.

This depends on the render view type and what the purpose for placement is. For a not-so-great visual, emissive is fine. If it was mine, I'd use added lights.

      Hi friends
      I am trying to get vertical rope light but could not achieve the results, on the roof it is workable but on wall it is not happening,  I tried to draw line in elevation and convert to rope light which is dimmed.
      can any one help
       
      I am attaching sample pictures

      I am drawing a plot plan and the terrain perimeter is angled a few degrees.  How can I show a dimension between the terrain perimeter and the setback line?  The manual dimension tool doesn't work unless the terrain CAD lines are the set angles allowed by CA.  I turn off the angle snaps and grid snaps, and it still won't draw a dimension.
