Complicated stair treads

Recommended Posts

Hello again. 

 

I have been tasked with he job of converting my companies Autocad DWG into chief

 

Every house bar this one have been easy because there is nothing simple about these stairs.

 

can anyone help me with a simple/easy way to do this staircase?

 

I feel my only option is to draw landings and change the heights of them....

 

Sorry the cad file make it look messy but you will be able to see my issue. the AutoCAD layer is called "*AutoCAD" shout be at the top of the layers list

Mark,

 

I was working under the restraint that all the risers are on radii from a common point (which I marked on my plan).

If you make your stair fill transparent, you can see the difference.

I was just giving it a go I am no expert with stairs but I did try to open your file to see what you came up with but you must not have closed chief when you zip as no data error

Have a good look at the plan and stair settings.

It is a curved stair centred with Winders checked.

      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,

      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.
