Stairwell update

Recommended Posts

I have created a simple straight stair and a stairwell opening. I needed to move the stair and the stairwell did not update. I selected the stair and then Edit>Auto Stairweel but there is a little wall created in the stairwell opening. Do I need to delete the stairwell before updating?

simple answer yes, Chief won't put a stairwell over an existing stairwell

Stairwells and Stair objects are separate constructs, the stair object being moved will not automatically effect the stairwell or visa versa. you might consider moving the stair object and then manually adjusting the stairwell to match the new stair location.

This is not true.  See pic,  both of those stairwells are on level 1.  Note you can define the top and bottom of each staircase via DBX.  

 

Now,  there is a limitation.  In my case I would of created a LANDING for the top landing of the bottom set of stairs.

 

Ray,  I think it would be more accurate to say you cannot have two stacked floors on the same level .

 

I  know,  getting a bit anal.......  but something  that should be understood.

How is a stairwell deleted? Got it to move by adjusting the wall at the head of the stairs.

Scott I was thing that he had drawn a set of stairs then used the make stairwell opening tool once that was done he moved the stairs to a different position and wanted the new stairwell open to update automatic the original stairwell opening, yes we can have to stairs on one floor I just don't think they and be in each others zone and again I could be wrong

David if I am thinking of what you are trying to do I would make the area on the upper floor unspecified or delete any railings that are up there and go to the first floor and auto build opening again
