Solid Guard on Custom Stair Tool




Im hoping someone can help me on how to create a solid guard using the custom stair tool. I am in need of making a angled stair with a 3'6" guard rail that is solid. I have attached a screenshot of what I'm trying to achieve using the regular stair tool. In the image the stair on the left is the custom stair tool with the angled lower half. On the right is the regular stair tool without any angle to the treads.


Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

@agill4 Hi this will do it using the stair tool. Landing under the sides hang down  but you can adjust. Set top of  rail high and overall height low see attached.
