Recommended Posts

Hi all. How dow get my bottom 2 steps to have a different width from the rest? I need to recreate the stairs below but can't find any applicable settings to do that?

Yep, thanks guys ! that will do. Half an hour of trying to figure it out by myself and 2 seconds for a workable response. Chieftalk is awesome :)

You can also set the stairs as winders and use invisible walls to the sides. The stairs will expand to those invisible walls.

I was trying to search for this function - how do you get that to activate?

Open the Staircase DBX and on the General Tab there is a Checkbox for Winders.

You need a bit more than just walls.

The walls need to form a room.

Thanks Glenn.

 

If you change the walls after the stair has conformed to them, open the dbx, uncheck, then check winders and they will reshape.

I maybe missing something but I have found that true for Exterior Stairs but not always for Interior Stairs but I think that is likely due to the Exterior Walls forming the "Room" , for example Warren's simple stairs with the one side flare/angle work, at least in a simple test plan.

Mick,

 

You are correct.

In your example above, the stairs are contained in a room.

Try breaking the room definition formed by the large room and see what happens to the winders
