How to get cutout under stairs with no doorway opening

Recommended Posts

We use X9 version. Is there a way to cut into a wall that's up against stairs going up and have a opening without using a doorway and make it follow the line of the stairs? See attached photo. The blue line shows where I want the opening to be done and it will be finished with drywall and will have no trim work or doorway opening. It will just be open. Thanks in advance.

Select the wall in elevation, break it as required and reshape it to create the opening.

I think you can use a PASS THRU and have it shaped like that opening.


You can always reshape the wall in 3d but that gets messy.

Doors, doorways, windows, pass throughs etc can all have a sloped top, and you can remove the parts like casing that you do not want.


I've used a doorway in this example.

      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.
