Archicad 24 | Elevate morph face to bridge two railings

Hi all, I am trying to bridge two handrails with a morph of the handrail with the elevate tool. Any idea on how to model this? I used https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GW78EsTiIIg as a reference.

Thanks @Hmooslechner

 

This solves for the overall shape. My next challenge is controlling for the rise where it interpolates between the two.

The desired shape via grasshopper.

With the rail-edge method above. 

Maybe this helps:

Thanks again! Is the fillet tool used in the morph pallet on ArchiCAD 16 a setting that needs to be turned on. I'm in 24 and I get there error when I attempt to fillet the edges of the morph line. See below. And that's with both types of selection.

Dont use the fillet - just make your own points along the needed 3D-curve. Its segmented anyway in Archicad.. Archicad is not the real choise to use for interior design - its for bigger things like houses. Such little things You want to design - its not impossible in AC but its not the best tool for that.  Rhino, Blender are much better in this topic.

Got that tool to show up in the pallet after a good restart.

Curve is correct as well.

Except for in plan, the arc shape is skewed 

 

Will probably stick to rhino for this particular piece. Thanks for the guidance thus far. 

A great tip & presentation of it love it!
