Stairs help

Recommended Posts

I'm creating a plan that includes stairs in the middle of the house.  I watched the videos and read the articles in the learning center and still, I'm having a few issues and I'm hoping someone can help.  My two remaining issues are:


1) when I view the stairs in 3D from the basement level, I see the stairs, but not the second floor - it looks like it goes to the out doors with blue sky (yes I've checked to make sure I have a ceiling over the 2nd floor).  See image 1

2) When I view the stairs from the 2nd floor, I only see an opening, also going to the outdoors with green grass - no stairs just an opening to below and to outside.  See image 2.


The stairs show in both the basement and the 2nd floor plan views, and I'm at a loss for what to try next.  I am running CA Interiors X9.


Thank you in advance for any insight you can provide.

Looks to me like you are using a Floor Camera when what you probably want is a Full Camera.

Are you using the Full Camera or the Floor Camera ?


Another thought is that you don't have Show all Floors enabled in3D ......


I assume you have built a Roof and foundation.....

Thank you both - I was using the floor camera and that did the trick.  Glad it was something simple!

      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.
