- In this video I want to look at adding railings.…There's two ways we can add railings.…We can create free standing guard rails…or we can add them to existing stairs and ramps.…So, I'm in a second floor plan and I want to start…by adding a guard rail to the edge of this floor slab…that looks down into that open space below.…So on the architecture tab, I'll click the drop down…next to the railing button and choose 'sketch path'.…So you use this method when you want…to create free-standing guard rails.…Now, I could just start drawing using the draw shapes…that are available right here.…
But one of the shapes that I really like…to use is the pick lines option.…When I choose pick lines, that's going…to allow me to actually, with the single click,…trace over existing geometry.…Now, I don't want to put my sketch line right there…on the edge of the floor.…I'd like to actually off set it away from there…just a little bit.…So there is an off set feature built…into this tool on the options bar.…So lets try a value of about 50 millimeters.…
