Stair stringer width

Recommended Posts

Changing the stair style changes the stringer width.  A single stringer is always 4", 2 closed stringers are always 2", and 3 standard stringers are always 1.5". 

 

For anything else, you would have to get creative.  For example, you could probably create a stringer out of a stair that has no railings or tread overhang and set it to the width you want and then convert it into a stringer symbol.

This is way too restrictive.  The Stair dbx should provide options to set the stringer sizes (both width and depth)

And the number of stringers is restrictive as well. We should be able to specify how many stringers we want and/or their max. spacing.

I agree too, but how does that help the original poster?

Obviously it doesn't - but maybe you could put a plug in for an enhancement.  Yes, I know that we can make suggestions but I'm pretty positive that this suggestion has been made many times in the past.

The answer is this type of stair adjustment should have been included in the stair DBX many years ago after many people have asked for it. People just don't really want to piece meal it and it takes more time to do.

It might help them want to upgrade to X12.

Yes I agree with all the suggestions above.  In my opinion chiefs stair tool has changed very little if any since version 10 and that's not X10 Im talking about.  Stairs are becoming more and more important with higher density building so having a stair overhaul would be much appreciated.  Just my two cents.
