How to create angled stair

Recommended Posts

Hello all!  New here, so please be easy on me.  

 

I have a renovation project that we are about to start, and the interior staircase has 2-45deg angles with winders in it.  For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to make the software draw it.  When i get the angle it does funky things with the winders.  When i make the winders work, I cant get the angle.

 

Any Suggestions?

Try getting the winders to work and then select the whole thing and rotate it as a unit.

Your "so called winders" are just "Landings".  You might have to do some manual work to get them to fit, but otherwise it's not that difficult.

Possible, maybe i am doing it wrong.  The auto stair tool is messing my mind up.

Automatic works for most cases but not all.  That's why there are manual alternatives.

Draw your 3 stair sections all separate from each other, but at the correct angles.

Don't worry about the overall heights, just get the goings and risers for each section correct.

Use point to point move to join them up.

You can then use the Landing tool to click between the stairs and the landing will auto build to join the 2 stair sections.

You can then edit the stairs and landings as needed for fine tuning.

      I have designed a pergola and a deck. I cannot get the terrian to show right. It needs to be zero of level at back of deck by pool deck and slowly slope down to a bayou. it needs to be 36" to grade at edge of outer deck Then a stair going down to the end of stair which is around 5 fr lower that top of deck. I have not did much terrian and would appreciate your help. This is just a remodeling and adding a deck from the pool. 
       
      Thank  you,

      The living room offers a peek to the upstairs living area via the stairway. The glass panel railings and open concept design create a mechanism for the big windows on the first floor and the high shed windows on the 2nd floor to collaborate on the sharing of light and air between floors.

      I am stuck on this one. I have a railing at the top of the stairs that I can't seem to get rid of. When I delete it the stair opening disappears. When i re-add the stair opening the railing across the top comes back.
