My client has a very specific look in mind, "H" shaped columns. I've managed to create them as a 3D item and import them as a column; however, when placed they all seem to act as I want them to, except one. What's the solution to this without having to place them all manually?
I've searched the forum topics and training videos but can't find anything specific on this, so I'm requesting input on a few stair rail quandaries.
Per the attachment:
1, I'd like to stop my stair rail when it butts to the 2nd floor platform but still have balusters in the triangle space below the platform
2. The railing continues through the platform and will not allow the upper railing (shown in the camera views) to extend to the top of the stairs
3. I've used an invisible wall at the top of the stairs and there is a lone framing member displayed where a newel post should go. How can I get rid of the framing member and place a newel post?
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?
