The Issue appears to be that you don't have a defined Room on the 2nd floor for the Staircase to start in , I added a Wall under the roof plane on the left to get Wall definition  and it is now working..... I didn't finish all the detailing , I fixed a few Walls only....but here is the Plan back.........

Thanks, Mick. I don't why, but the simplest staircases still make me crazy.

 

No Problem , it wasn't the Staircase as such though , since you didn't have a "room" there on the lower balconey, there was no Floor for the staircase to build off so it was confused.

 

Looking into the balcony in 3D I could see under the Roof plane , so I was fairly sure what the issue was, knowing that IRL there would be a wall supporting that Roof Plane , I drew one in and didn't need to do anything special on the staircase except click "make best Fit" once the "room" was made.

You can always control the top and bottom heights of a staircase directly in the dbx without any reference to floor or landing heights. 

 

Oh so true.

 

While true , I don't believe this is a good practice , the staircase was not building on the 2nd floor for a reason, ie the Model was not correct, as evidenced by the fact the staircase immediately drew correctly once the "Room" had definition and thus a Floor, which Staircases are programmed to "find" automatically. ( or the Terrain Plane if exterior stairs ).

 

In a Pinch would I / have I used this Tip ?  Yes.... but it's not one to use as SOP.... try and fix the underlying cause 1st.

Yes, but I was just saying....

 

Hi Tommy,  I know that both you and Glenn being CA Experts would not use this Tip in everyday use , I just didn't want others thinking this was normal procedure.
