In Revit there's a dedicated section for dealing with stairs. It's called circulation and it has improved drastically in recent versions of the software. In this lesson we'll look at the circulation tools and the types of families that go into a staircase.
In this lesson we'll add a railing to the edge of the second floor. We'll select a railing, use the Create Similar command, offset the railing from the floor, and tie the railing back into the winding stairs.
A nosing profile can have many different applications in a model. In this chapter you'll learn how to create a nosing profile family and add it to your stairs.

In this chapter you'll learn how to create a custom railing system. We'll add a top rail, create a spindle family, add the spindle to the railing, and add a gooseneck to tie the main railing to the post.
Creating a Custom Railing System
To start creating a custom railing system, we need to pick out a family, then create a new top rail. In this lesson you will see where families are stored in the Project Browser and learn how to alter the parameters to get the rail you want.
