In the first part of the tutorial I spoke about how to create a generic wall mounted railings. In this part I will explain how to adjust those railings and be more precise on the detail.

This is the tricky part. If you, before selecting the railing, press Tab on your keyboard and select only the handrail you will be able to reach handrail properties. In Instance Properties tab only Identity Data fields can be changes but in Type Properties window plenty of useful parameter can be found.

Our streamed news readers know that we share our BIM advances in productivity enhancement working with Revit®. Usually we talk about how Revit plugins can help you to simplify your workflow. But this time we would like to share advices on how to work smarter without using Revit plugins. No additional software is required for this tutorial – all tools are available in standard Revit interface. So, now we suggest Tips & Tricks from AGA CAD on how to go into next Level of Detail (LOD) to create wall mounted railings.

For many Revit users railings seem to be limited in flexibility. However advanced users can achieve various results using Revit railing families. In this tutorial I will explain how to create and adjust wall mounted railings.

First of all, let's create any railings or any stairs that include railings on it, next to a wall or a corner. In standard Revit templates railings have balusters which go down to the host of the railing.

As railing is a Revit system family we can't create it from scratch therefore we have to duplicate an existing family. So let's select existing railing and in Instance Properties window select Edit Type tool.

Thank you.
