Yusuf,

You just beat me to it.
I had it figured out by using the top rail to build the wall and using the top rail height to drop the bottom of the solid rail down below the stair itself - the top of the solid rail remains at the set height.

Yeah Glenn, you got it. Sorry I should wait your response but I couldn't hang the OP since we were both posting and helping him in his thread seeking for help. Any ways I was sure you'll find out. And exactly your thought was where I started to think of the problem further. I just used an open railing with top rail only. Then adjusting the width and heights accordingly.

Thank you Glenn I may come back with other fun challenges in an other thread.

Very ingenious, Yusuf!

I do have some issue with my winders, they are not working and have a support ticket open. That might be my issue. I will update once I get an answer to that.

Thank you,

Steve

Hey Steve

Great you have got all the setting, I see you uploaded the dbx. You missed the other important setting to make the smooth transitions. The newel setting! 

Let me add a little more explanation.

How does the program calculate the railing on top of different sections in a railing? I found out that it depends on the newel spacing. If the newel spacing is set to 50cm and compare it with another one with 100cm spacing, you will see the former will have smooth transitions. 

Therefore, if you set NS=0 and (newel width = 0) you get perfect smooth transitions.

I watched your video and see you had issues with smoothness. Hope that helps.

      Is there a way to erase entities on a visible layer? Or like the shift key, select all from a specific layer?
      Or, more specifically, I had to mirror a plan and my sections are messed up with Auto Details that were applied to the section. How do I delete these details so I can apply again?

      Thank you,
      Steve

      When I set the roof structure thickness to 7.25, the roofs are still generated at 3.5

      In this video at 14:30 the presenter shows how he makes a copy of the solid, adjusts it and then subtracts the one from the other. All looks straight forward.
      However, some time ago when I did this, I had a popup come up when I did not read, I only checked the box and closed it. Doing so changed things and now I am always left with the solid that I want to remove. I end up having to delete the main (makes a copy some how) and delete the solid I want to subtract.
      Here is my result...

      My question is, where do I turn that popup back on, in some way get back to having it work as shown in this video?
      Thank you,
      Steve

      I have run into this and left it, but I know it used to set back to the main wall. Is there another setting I need to use for a garage door?
