Stair Shape. Stumped!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I can't seem to get this shape using the stairs tool. Am I missing something?  How would you create this type of stair? It has been the longest day! See attached pic.

Patience and perseverance is all I can think of, one should be able to at least get close to your posted image.

"Those will be a true challenge in X8" - Chief Architect Technical Support. Yikes. Looks like I better hunker down and get started trying to create a solution. Thnak you David.

Each of the flare-out steps can be done as a landing.  Any shape can be drawn with Chief CAD, and then turned into a landing.

 

I just sketched out a couple of landings, one as your first step, the other as your second.

Joey, I was just starting to experiment with the landings before you wrote that. I was hoping to avoid having several sections to these stairs. Thanks for taking a look at it. Thank you Gene for taking time out of your day to help me. I did submit my plan to Chief and they said they would see what they could come up with. Fingers crossed it's not the landing method, but it probably will be.  :blink:

Thank you Perry. SO, get this. After all that fuss, after submiting to chief and posting on this forum, they want a landing at the bottom of the stairs with with steps up from both sides... After messing with this until 2:30 in the morning and they decide they want to change the stairs. I wanted to scream! But they are the client and I just a humble draftsman...  :rolleyes:  A glass or two of wine with lunch helped bring me back to earth. LOL

I hate that, it happens to all of us, we just have to keep plugging along to get it done, you can always charge them extra if its there fault.
