  1. Click to place the first point for the path.

    • You can use Pin Point, Point Along, and the SmartSketch relationship indicators when defining your path.

    • For handrails, you can change the path plane at any time by selecting a new plane in the Plane list.

    • To change the segment from a straight line to an arc, click Arc by 3 Points in the Path Type list, and then click 3 points to define the arc.

    • To switch back to a straight line after sketching an arc, click Line in the Path Type list.

  2. Click the second point for the path.

    • To change turn type for the corner, click the new turn type in the Turn Type list and define the angle or offset dimensions for the turn in the Value box

    • Use the Split turn type to place individual walls or handrails for each straight segment of the path.

  3. Click to place other segments of the path as needed.

  4. After you place all the points that define the path, click Finish.

  • The software does not require that you close the path for a handrail. You can end the path wherever you want.

  • The software does require a closed shape for a slab boundary. If you do not define a closed shape path, then you need to specify additional objects in the model for the missing boundary sides.

  • After you place a segment of the path by defining two points, you can click Edit on the ribbon to change the segment.

  • To manually set the length and angle for a segment of the path, change the values in the Angle and Length boxes on the ribbon.
