Connecting 3 or more landings


Recommended Posts

Hey all-


I often have landscape stairs that are not well served by the stair tool, and have been trying to create a multi-landing "stairway" consisting of 3 or more landings connected to each other - NOT separated by stairs.  I've attached screenshots of the problem I'm having - chief will connect the first landing in a series but not the subsequent landings (screenshot shows a connection to the bottom landing and to the top landing, but not the landing separating the two).


Is there a way to connect landings that are not separated by a stair section created by the stair tool, or should I stop beating my head against this and just draw polyline solids for the landings and manually figure out the stair connections?


Thank you!

I knew as soon as I posted this I would figure it out (or would remember there is a printed user manual is more accurate).  Ended up drawing two sections of stair, perpendicular to each other and wrapping the upper landing.  The two sections mitered automatically around the landing.  Then positioned this against the lowermost landing and they all connected.  I lost the miter at the corner, but since I don't have any tread overhang on the outside stair I was able to just pull one of the stair sections over.  I'll play with this to see how to make it work and preserve the miter once I've got this project off the books.

      I an redesigning a house that has basement , main floor and upper level. Rough measurements 29 W x 24 D 
      Attached is the engineering structural beams required for the open concept main floor plan .
      The beams in the basement are 10" high 10" deep (basement will not be developed).
      Beams for second floor are 8" high x 8" deep
      My issue is the stairs.  where/how do I place them without interfering with the support beams.  The floor plan was roughly designed before we had the engineering drawing.  Now I have to reconfigure for the stairs. that's my problem. 
      (The upper level is smaller than the lower level as result of a new  add on)
      Any suggestions are welcome..

      Wondering if anybody is able to tell me how to do this... I am trying to create a room under the stairs, and I would like to have an angled wall under the stairs to close it in. I want the bottom of the wall to follow along the stairs, but can't seem to get it? I created a wall along here, but have no options that I can see to make it follow the stairs. I can make it follow the stairs on the top side, like a railing, but cannot figure out how to do it below. 
      Any ideas??

      Thanks to anyone with some ideas on this!

      I'm working on a lobby space and the first floor will only show the curved stairs.  I can't seem to get the landing and stairs from the second floor to show on the first floor. 
      Any one know how to get the landing and stairs to show?
