How do I get the top railing to cover the post on these deck stairs?

 

Thanks,

Mike, the problem you are running into is that SoftPlan's railings only go to the centers of the posts and there is no setting to allow you to extend them.

I can think of only two possible solutions. You can set the bottom posts as "flat" to get rid of them. Then you can extend the railing and place a cube to be used as the bottom post. But then you run into the problem of the toe rail extending past the post as well and the post top will be flat.

You could also create custom railings by drawing them in profile using solid shapes and then you could save that as a 3D model insert the 3D model as a symbol.

As always Bill, thank you for your response. Perhaps in the next version it will be a

simpler process.
