Specifications

Railing preview

It is the 3 dimensional view of the railing object being worked on. You can rotate the image around itself by holding down the left mouse button and moving it. You can zoom in and out by holding the right mouse button and moving the mouse.

Pst

The start post is the vertical profile placed at the first point of the railing object.
Corner post is vertical profiles placed at the turning points of the railing object.
End post is the vertical profile placed at the end point of the railing object.

Displacement

Sets the distance of the post from the railing object. The perpendicular is shifted left and right according to the negative and positive value.

Top offset

This column, which becomes functional when the extrusion type Z direction is selected in the table on the right, determines how much the strut element will extend or shorten from the top. A positive value means that it will grow from the top, and a negative value means it will shorten.

Profile

It is the column that determines the section of the strut object. A suitable profile is selected from the list.

Extrusion type

It is the column that determines the method by which the 3D profile will be extended.

Extrusion on local z: This method is a method that enables a profile to be obtained by extending a section defined as 2B in the horizontal plane in the direction of the z local axis.
Extrusion on local y: This method is the method that enables a profile to be obtained by extending a section defined as 2D in the vertical plane in the y local axis direction.
Extrusion on local x: This method is a method that enables a profile to be obtained by extending a section defined as 2D in the vertical plane in the x local axis direction.
Revoliton on local z: This method is a method that enables a profile to be obtained by rotating a section in the vertical plane in the direction of the z local axis (around its own axis), which is defined as 2D.

Thickness

The thickness of the profile element whose extension type is x or y direction is given in this column.

Material

The material to be used for the relevant profile is selected from the list.

Texture world length

The texture length of the material used is entered. For example; If 1 is entered, the selected material texture width is taken as 1 unit and covered on the relevant walls. Considering that the texture is in the form of a square, the object surfaces are covered with 1x1 textures arranged side by side. It can be determined separately for each surface.

Railing ID

The program will give a name to the railings by default. The name of the railing can be seen on this line, another name can be given if desired.

Color

The color of the railings is selected from the color palette that opens when clicked.

Line type

The line type of the railing object is selected from the list that opens when clicked.

Elevation

It is the elevation value of the railing object according to the floor base. Depending on the negative or positive value, the guardrail is shifted up or down.

Chord count

It determines the number of sides of the vertical profiles created by the rotated object method in railing and pillars. The greater value allows a denser circle. The default value is fine.

Start offset

Offsets the starting post by the entered value.

End offset

Offsets the end post by the entered value.

Load profile from library

It calls the profile types previously prepared and saved to disk or project to the project.

Delta

The railing point is chosen. One of the top, middle, bottom and user defined options is selected.

Path

In the process of placing the railing object, the placement is the option that regulates whether it will be along the throughout path (entire line) or along each per segment (line segment). If the throughout path is selected, the method specified as the settlement method is applied for the entire path. If the per segment is selected, the method chosen is applied at each of the spacers.

Positioning

In the placement process of the railing object, it is the option that determines whether the placement will be made by fitting along the path or by allowing it to remain at the end. When fit is selected, guardrail profiles are created to be evenly distributed along the road, regardless of spacing. If the Fit option is checked, each railing profile will be created with the distances defined for it and the distance left at the end.

Reverse path

This option takes the symmetry of the railing relative to its own plane.

Lengthen balusters and posts to base

It performs the automatic extension of the vertical rails and posts to a certain base on the railings that are drawn on object basis and given the elevation value. This process allows the railing posts to be extended over the landing, especially in the elevation differences from the curved part to the landing part on the stairs.
