You are going to need to be more explicit.
What kind of rail ? stair rail ? guard rail ? railroad track rail ?

I working on AC v.11

all I need is to "draw" a rail (my parameters as height,gaps etc that I define) the same as I draw a wall !!!

can I do that ? why does it come with segments? I want it to be continuous !
I am talking about only rail !!! paraphet ! not stairs....

thanx Peter

The answer to your question is to investigate "Complex Profile" where any shape can become a wall profile - like handrails.

Are you trying to draw a parapet wall that is curved in plan and
is not made from a chain of straight segments ?
If so, you can use the wall tool with the curved geometry method.
I am sorry, I obviously don't understand what you want to do.

We discuss "Complex Profile" a lot.

Try to search for previous postings on this forum.

See the Reference guide.

but it should be soo simple..can`t I make it with "element" : "rail"?
is that complicated?

I found there my rail profile just it makes segment instead to be continuos.

Archicad is not that simple apparently.
