Structure Explode to miter handrails

Miter1

If you want to miter handrails,  you will first need to explode the rails since all of the structural members are grouped and cannot be mitered.

Instead of using the regular AutoCAD EXPLODE command, use the Structure Explode button on the Structure Ribbon.

This will make sure that each structural member is free of the railing group.

Next step is to use the Miter Cut Member command to miter each of the pieces of the railing.
