How to change stair stringer to a different material?

Recommended Posts

This might sound like a stupid question, but is there no way of making the stringer a material other than the risers?

I believe they are tied together. If you select the material you want and then select the "C" painter option and then paint the item you want to be different, then if the other item also changes then they are tied together, if only the single item changes then they are independent.

I've created a p-solid to place on the side of the stringer.

 

Elevation, CAD Detail From View, trace the stringer, copy the new polyline, paste hold position in the elevation, convert to a p-solid, set thickness and material. Takes a minute or 2.

Thanks Eric, i wanted to show carpet on stairs and another material on stinger.

Maybe i can use a carpet runner full width?

Seems very odd that ca would have the stringer the same material as stairs, this is not the norm in my area?

 

Cheers.

Thanks for reply’s 

it seems like ca has some work to do on stairs.

adjustible stringer thickness comes to mind as well as separate  material for stringer.

 

in my area for a standard builder house they use a stringer against wall and run carpet up the inside of stringer to the top and then a wood cap is put on top of stinger against wall to finish off.

but there is about 1/2” of space between stringer and wall then a 1.5” stringer..
