Rise Angle

Recommended Posts

Hello!!

 

I am trying to figure out how to adjust the rise angle of a pair of stairs. I have stairs in and they do not reach the next level. Can anyone help me? Also, I have set up the signature but not sure how to get it to show when I post. I am using Chief Architect Premier X9.

 I have tried this and it goes way beyond where I want it to be. I will post pictures in a few.

The green check mark is where the door opens for the staircase not the one with the red x. First picture is the stairs before the "make best fit" option and the second is a different view of the make best fit.

Now that you have them reaching the next level, select the stairs in the floor plan view, and drag the end to where you want it. It should automatically adjust the threads to fit, but you might not like the result.

You also have tons of control over the rise of the staircase via the tread depth and riser height settings in the stair dialog box.

Make Best Fit makes the stair reach the floor above. You will need to adjust the number of treads/tread depth to achieve the fit you need.

Make Best Fit will automatically generate enough 11" deep steps to reach the next level that are as close to the "ideal" riser height of 6.75" as the program can get.

 

Looking at your picture, you may not be able to create a stairway that is as short as you want that will reach the next level and still meet typical code requirements.

 

You can either make your tread depth shorter or remove some steps and use a larger riser height.  By default, the program will not let you build a stairway with automatic heights unless the riser heights are less then 9".  You can turn off the automatic heights and specify whatever riser height you want but your stair may not be very practical or legal.

      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.
