hi Mogens,

If you have any photos, we would love to see the project as you build it!

All the best,

Hi Mogens,

You can use StairDesigner to design platforms and horizontal balustrades by making a stair with a height of “0”.

Have a look at this video:

http://stairdesignsoftware.net…..irdesigner

This is neat if you have complicated shaped mezzanines as it distributes the spindles and calculates all the parts.

However in your case of a very simple straight balustrade it’s also very quick to draw by hand in CAD. and you  have already done.

You could set it up again in StairDesigner to get the cutting lists but the extra effort is not really necessary IMO.

One detail on your stair I would modify is the first step.

I would make it more like this:
