Stair problems

Recommended Posts

Try to do a railing(Painels) over a stair with winders turned on. Is pathetic waste all the day looking for a workaround and see that you can't do that.

You use invisible wall to define the stair limit, so you use railing tool to make railing painels and turn on follow stair. You can't make your stair ignore the railing to define the limit of the winders.

People who made this tool probably do not use the software.

Extend Stringer Top is useless if this can't reach the ceiling.

      I'm trying to change the material for the trim alongside my stairs independent of the riser material. I want the trim to match the baseboards in the rest of the house and the riser to match the tread. Is it possible to separate the trim and the riser material in the stair definition dialog?

      So here I am trying to make some winder stairs.  I create the stairs, move them into a corner, turn off the railings and click on the stairs to open them, then click on the winder check mark.  Nothing happens.  What am I doing wrong?

      On the floor #1 I have a straight stairway with a winder entry and winder exit onto the 2nd floor. I create the stairs the exact same way the tutorial does it, click on winders and it remains rounded corners. What am I doing wrong.
