Building Railings for Level and Sloped Conditions
Railings are created much like stairs and ramps; you select the tool, enter Sketch mode, create your linework, and then finish the sketch. The Railing tool can be found on the Circulation panel of the Home tab in the ribbon, or you can drag the desired railing type from the Project Browser into the project view window.
