Here is the video and the plan on how to create a deck railing post fasci mount. This method allows you to freely control the bottom height of railing regardless of floor levels, and allows to simply draw a railing with specified inset, offset and z control for deck and stair railings.

The plan, hint:- don't miss viewing the z.

Yusuf, as usual you have done a great job of finding how to get the software to do what needs doing. The ability to see or confront beyond the usual abilities of software is a brilliant, creative, helpful and useful thing to do. It shows an unusually high level of creative intelligence that you have and share with us. Thank you.

David, thank you very much. Really glad, if that if that helped.

Thanks

I don't get it.  When DJP applauds the method,  what is he applauding?  Why does the railing follow the stairs?  Why does the railing jump up to the second level?  Where are the 4x4 posts that should be attached to the side of the deck.  If there are 4x4 posts,  how do you control the spacing?  FYI,  I have never built a deck railing as shown.  

 

Let's question the methods instead of applauding a method that I  think does not solve the initial modeling challenge.

 

Yusuf,  it is always helpful if you explain how you were able to do what you did.  What were the initial settings?  And Yusuf,  check your audio,  maybe it is just me,  but I swear I  could not make out a word you said.

dshall, maybe You should check Best Practices Guide to Residential Construction

You can also find more detailed  explanation at Inspectapedia - http://inspectapedia.com/BestPractices/Rooftop_Decks.htm   .

Guy tried really hard, and found one way to skin the cat. If he changes the settings to check balusters and post to rail, and newels/post to 4, railing height to 44, and raise bottom rail to 12", here you are -very close to 4x4.

Or he can do just thing manually - check panels or no rail, change newel width to zero, and make posts manually...

By the way, check initial settings on plan file that is attached.

Sound really sucks. I also couldn't understand a word, luckily, idea is good enough to start thinking about it, even without the audio.

But how would You do that? Just make a video, I always find them to be really good, and love to watch them.

If nothing, sound(s) will be better.

Scott, first I did not get it, what you want. I didn't give care to the type of railing I used, the main target of the video is to show a method(formula) the railing is the "variable" apply any railing with any setting you want! If you have already a plan that contains or resembles your setting, then copy on to my plan. It seems you did not understand the hint! view "the all on set" you will see why it follows it.

About the sound I will try improvents. I was making a video today and tried to fix it. Hope it is better now.

Thanks.

Thank you very much, you said what I would say about it. I will try to correct the sound issue, sorry about it.

Did you turn on the 'Z' layer Scott as Yusef "hinted" in his post when looking at his plan? he is using Ramps...

Mick thanks, Scott failed to examine the plan before rushing to......

Thanks for clearing it to him.

      My client has a very specific look in mind, "H" shaped columns.  I've managed to create them as a 3D item and import them as a column; however, when placed they all seem to act as I want them to, except one.  What's the solution to this without having to place them all manually?

      TIA.

      I've searched the forum topics and training videos but can't find anything specific on this, so  I'm requesting input on a few stair rail quandaries.
      Per the attachment: 
      1,  I'd like to stop my stair rail when it butts to the 2nd floor platform but still have balusters in the triangle space below the platform
      2.  The railing continues through the platform and will not allow the upper railing (shown in the camera views) to extend to the top of the stairs
      3.  I've used an invisible wall at the top of the stairs and there is a lone framing member displayed where a newel post should go.  How can I get rid of the framing member and place a newel post?

      What is the best way to get the wide(left) side of these curved stairs to go into the wall corner?

      Hey All,
       
      My company is in the process of making the switch from Autodesk Revit to Chief Arch (Version X12) and I have been spending my time trying to create a lot of commonly used design elements we use on our plans but I have run into a hiccup. I'm trying to create a small, inset-type staircase (attached image is what I've done in Revit in the past) that is typically used on our plans to go from grade-level sidewalk to the main floor elevation. In my attempts, stairs either fail to recognize the elements around them or if I create them like I would in Revit in creates this garbled configuration where the stairs are their own room and the footprint of the stairs themselves cut a hole through the roof.
       
      Checking Forums, YouTube, and the Chief site have all yielded nothing and I in my limited knowledge cannot figure it out. What am I missing?
