I'm trying to get stairs that look like this:

They look like this right now:

How can I achieve this?

 

 

Thanks.

 

Not sure if anyone has come up with a new method but I build shaped stairs out of landings as they use a polyline. Simply stack your landings to create stairs and uncheck railings in the dbx.

You can do this using Winders.

The trick is that you need the stairs to be contained in a room (invisible walls) for winders to work - including a very thin wall at the join line between the flights.

Are you aware that if you do the stairs following your attached sketch, the treads on the sides will be smaller than the centre treads because you have made the join line at 90deg to the building.

To make the treads the same size on the centre flight and side flights, the join line needs to bisect the angle between the stairs (as I have done on the left hand side).

The right hand side is as per your sketch.

      Hey All,
       
      My company is in the process of making the switch from Autodesk Revit to Chief Arch (Version X12) and I have been spending my time trying to create a lot of commonly used design elements we use on our plans but I have run into a hiccup. I'm trying to create a small, inset-type staircase (attached image is what I've done in Revit in the past) that is typically used on our plans to go from grade-level sidewalk to the main floor elevation. In my attempts, stairs either fail to recognize the elements around them or if I create them like I would in Revit in creates this garbled configuration where the stairs are their own room and the footprint of the stairs themselves cut a hole through the roof.
       
      Checking Forums, YouTube, and the Chief site have all yielded nothing and I in my limited knowledge cannot figure it out. What am I missing?

      A bit of an issue. I have two staircases. One from the basement to the first floor. Directly above are the other stairs which go from the first to the second floor. When I run "Auto Stairwell" on the basement stairs, the other stairs drop to the basement. I have never had this issue in any other versions. Why? (See attached screen shoot). Running CA12 on Win10Pro.
       
      Thanks in advance.

      I'm making an electrical plan and trying to figure out how to add my electrical line to my light fixture over the stairs - shown on the main floor. So I have a 2 way switch at the bottom and top of the stairs.

      I was messing around with my template wanting to get some more things in place for my stairs and defaults. I ran into this before and just moved on, but now I am drawing homes using Chief and need to find a way to angle or follow the stairs with a halfwall. Thank you

      1) Finished floor for this existing building is 36". The driveway in back is level with finish floor also. I cannot get the landscape all around to fill in under building and driveway. The drive slopes up to flat across as much as I have flat. The exist. H.C. ramp goes into a concrete porch. This is as-built plan and then I will design a restaurant on the first floor. 
      2) I cannot get u shaped stairs to work and land on the 2nd floor by the entry door.
       
      I would appreciate any help in accomplishing what i need to do.
       
      Thanks,
