Handrail offset

Recommended Posts

Stair (not custom stair): how is the outer handrail offset from the wall? Can't see any option under the 'railings' tab.

Whether railing is 'beside' or 'on' stair, I don't see how a hand can get around the rail. We need the 'beside' option attached...the outer handrail actually goes into the wall!

Assemblage the file you posted is a Vw 2010 file where there aren't as many options. In Vw 2011 there are more options for handrails and guardrails and there is an offset parameter. See images below.

Thanks Mike, 2011 does it. Trying to complete the project in 2010 in which it is already advanced. Forming the stair in 2011 and bringing it into 2010 either as itself or as a generic solid or mesh all end up as just lines. Will attempt the 1:20's etc in 2011 then I guess.
