Can't get wrapping stairway to fit to angled wall in X9

Recommended Posts

I am trying to get a wrapped stair to extend to a 45 degree angled wall on one side. I have the "winder" and "allow wrap" boxes checked and when I join the two sections together, it no longer fits to the angled wall like it does when the stair sections are separate. I have tried a multitude of stair specification settings, but nothing seem to resolve the issue. Please see the two attachments to see the resulting issue. Any ideas on how to correct this seemingly simply problem?

It's easier on others if you post your plan :)


I'd use 2 landings.


You can trick the stairs to almost work. I think this is something that does not work as it might.

Draw a Room Divider (or very thin invisible wall) wall between the 2 stairs - at the angle of the join (157.5deg in this case) and hide that layer.

Uncheck "Allow Wrap".

Use "Winders" for both stairs.

The reason the stairs don;t seem to work in that situation is due to the lack of a landing.  Another method you can use is to draw an actual landing and then simply place that landing onto a unique layer and turn that layer off...



The 2 key components are that you have a landing and that your stairs be set to winders (at least for the one side).


The trickier part is how to deal with the nosing.  Here I just moved the landing down 1/8" and changed the line style for the Floor Surfaces Layer to Invisible...


...and here I just used a molding polyline for the nosing...

      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.
