My out-of-the-box thinking didn't work good enough to recrete this railing. I got as far as the solid part with the built in stair tool. However the groove for the hand got me. I tried to morph it. I tried a complex profile but couldn't ramp it up properly.
Is it doable or do I need Objective? What do you think?
Use more than one and with solid element operators remove the parts you don't need.
Thanks a lot Erwin,
I didn't know about that railing object. Those I had in my libary were to crude.
Now it's a walk in the park...I did one solid ralinig, duplicated ut and adjusted the heigt. Morphed the copey and changed the end shape and finally a SEo...and voila.
