Stairs, Railings and Walls...

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I am having an issue with an L-shaped stair.  The lower portion of the stair is wider than the landing and overlaps the wall.  The railing should die into the wall like shown but, the corner of the wall is not showing.  I'm assuming it is because the stair itself is preventing the wall below from extending up (see photos 1A, 1B, 1C)

I have a stair to the basement directly below this stair which is why I'm using a wall below (to define the the "open to below" space)

 

My attempt at fixing this issue was to make the wall below the stair invisible (which allows me to maintain the "open to below" space)

I then selected the stair and deselected "Open Underneath" via the Style menu.

This looks correct in the perspective view but, it leaves my plan view undesirable because it shows an invisible wall below the stair (see photos 2A, 2B, 2C)

 

In an effort to rectify this issue I relocated my breakline which I believe circumvents the issue. (see photo 3A)

 

Anyone know of another way?

 

Thanks

Place the wall on its own layer, and do not display that layer.

Thanks Eric

 

It seems creating the panel below the lower portion of the stair also creates a panel below the upper portion of the stair.

I think your solution might be the way to go.

 

Thanks Again

      I have an octagonal shaped room (silo, 3 stories tall) and I need to build a stair case along the outer wall, following the shape of the octagon, with winders in the corners. What is the best way to go about doing this? I can't seem to figure out how to get the angles correct, the railings to work, get it to create winders on the corners, or get it tight to the wall.

      Hello, I need help creating this specific balaced stair in chief architect premier x12. 
      The only thing i could think of was to manually create every step from slabs. I still need to corect some steps from plan view but at least the height and length are good - now how can i add the rails on the inside and outside walls?
       
      Or maybe is wrongfully thought from the start; what is the simplest, smartest way to create this type of stairs?
