Tip

Layout rule defines the distribution and placement of the panel segments along the chosen edge. You can adjust spacing between two posts by setting a corresponding value in distance parameter.

Tip

Offset Parameter defines the distance between the chosen edge and the axis of the railing. Indention parameter defines the distance between beginning/end of an edge to the first/last railing’s post.

Note

While selecting multiple edges, make sure that all the edges are creating continuous line.
