Weird curved guardrail

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I am trying to create a simple straight stair with landing at the midpoint.

The guard the generates for inside of the stair creates some weird curve as its turning the corner to go up the stairs.

How can I fix this? There should be  a way to detach the two sections fo guards, upper and lower and have them run straight to a post?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I fear not.

Guardrails went crazy long ago.

thanks for the response, I have given up trying to use the auto generate feature and am modelling them independently of the stair tool.

Me too.

And as the rest of the stair geometry isn't that clean either

I often use it as single flight stairs only.

That's generally the only way really for a stair like that. The handrail in the stair tool is not very smart.

 

One thing that does help if possible—in the model and in the real world—is to offset the first step of the second flight.
