Stairs with changes in materials/construction

Recommended Posts

Anyone know a good way to change a single section of stairs from one material/construction method to another without effecting the connected landings/stair sections?  In the screenshot, i have a concrete exterior stair that I want the final upper section to be wood with railing and open below, but cannot figure out how to make this happen.

 

Thanks Todd

At this point you have to make your auto height of the stair off, and you can replace the landing next to the upper stair by a psolid. So you can edit that stair independently.

Hope that helps, but may not be the only solution as others will post their takes on the issue.

The easy way is to put the Landing in after setting each section to the style you want.  The Landing will then take on the characteristics of the lower section. I would still use a slab or psolid to extend the landing as appropriate.

Just hold the shift key down when you select the upper stair section.

 

This will put you into "multi-select" mode.  The stair dialog will then only make changes to the selected sections and not to any of other the connected sections.

Thanks Yusuf & Joe - that worked.

 

...and then Dermot swoops in with Magic Sneaky Keys - who knew?!  Very Very useful tidbit - thank you!

      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.

      Hello, I need help creating this specific balaced stair in chief architect premier x12. 
      The only thing i could think of was to manually create every step from slabs. I still need to corect some steps from plan view but at least the height and length are good - now how can i add the rails on the inside and outside walls?
       
      Or maybe is wrongfully thought from the start; what is the simplest, smartest way to create this type of stairs?
