Wall surface not joining with railing surface

Hi all, i've recenetly changed to using the railing tool when drawing nib walls up stairs (way easier/faster than trimming the wall with a piece of roof imo) 

 

The wall below is the same surface as the railing tool but they are not seamless in 3d. There is always a line when the two meet. 

 

Any idea as to why? i can work around this in 26 by creating a 3d documment and plotting a white line over the join but i'd love it if i could get it to join automatically. 

 

Layers are the same

Materials are the same 

Surfaces are the same

wall and railing are perfectly in line

The wall is obviously a wall but the railing is an object.

Surfaces of objects do not merge with other elements.

i figured as much......well thats shame. 

Just use a wall for the entire wall/rail.

Angle the top with an opening or Solid Element Operate with a roof or inclined beam in a hidden layer.

Or keep using the Railing as the SEO Operator and move that to a layer that can be hidden. That way the SEO Operator stays associated to the Wall it cuts.
