    Default Top Rails Revit 2013

    Is there a problem with the new feature in revit 2013 using the top rails as handrails?

    if i model a top rail with 36" aff and 1 1/2" dia and use say floor extension 12" long, it models it but won't show in plan. if i hover over where it should be it then hightlights. if i change the top rail to a regular hand rail then it shows up. what am i missing with this new feature?

    this may help...

    top rail feature and highlights while editing

    now it doesn't show

    if i hover over it with the mouse it shows and selects

    shown in section it is there

    why won't is show in plan?

    It might have to do with your view range. Not sure, but maybe try messing with that.

    i have tried that. if i change the top rail to the way handrails and guardrails were modeled in 2012 and earlier, then it shows up. i was really excited about this feature becuase it has handrail wall extensions returns, floor returns and the P return built into it but you have to use it with a top rail function which i can't get to seem to display....

    Try using a Plan Region, and set the View Range differently than the rest of the Floor Plan View and see it it will display. If it displays in elevation/section/3D, then it is a visibility issue in the Plan.

    so i figured it out by accident. they are not visible in a coarse view setting, only medium and fine. this has been driving me nuts. regualr rails do not do that!
