Stairs And Door


Recommended Posts

I agree with the safety issues, but here you are anyway.

 

The stairs have to be identical in every way, so better to draw one and then copy.

Use the Wrap option in the stairs dbx - Style panel.

 

Change the stair's fill style to transparent to see the door swing.

Good evening,

 

I have a similar stair scenario for a set of as-built drawings.  I am attempting to miter the stairs, and have the "Allow Wrap" box checked.  However, the stairs do not miter, as I am hoping they would. 

 

Has anyone had issues similar to this that you have overcome?  I realize that I can create landing or polyline solids to create the look, but I was hoping to use the built in stair tools.

 

Attached is the plan file.  The stairs are on the second level.

 

Thank you,

 

Stephen

I don't think that's legal around here. A 3'landing then the steps would save someone a lawsuit.

 

Here too, If the door swings out over the stair a landing is required.

If the door swings over the stairs--landing needed, if the door swings to the inside, then legal, just to have a typical riser up against the door.

Thank you for the replies.  I agree with the code issues.  However, I am creating a set of As-Built plans and wish to portray the building accurately.  

 

The trouble that I am having is using the stair mitering tool.  Do you happen to know what the secret to mitering identical stairs similarly to the plan that I posted above?

 

Thank you so much for your continued posts.  I enjoy reading them.

 

Take care,

 

Stephen

Stephen,

There is another way to do this if the Allow Wrap setting is not working.

I haven't had much success with internal corners with that tool.

I will do a video using your plan when I get time - easier to do a video than try and describe it.

This is done with stairs.

I believe Allow Wrap only works for an outside corner, not an inside corner.

You can do this with winders and an invisible wall. Pull both stairs back, insert a 45-degree invisible wall defined with a single very thin main layer (must be room def), define both stair sections as winders, then drag them back toward the wall and mess with the Tread Contraction value until they "join".
