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.

      I need just the railing against the walls. No post or cable. I have been trying to fix it for 2 days.

      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??

      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?

      I can't find answers to three challenges I'm having with this stairway.  On the lower section, I need an open stairway with one stringer - treads stopping 2" away from outside wall.  The landings need to be open (like the lower section).  Then I need the top section to be closed.
      Is there a way to modify the lower and upper sections seperately?  How do I get the landings to be open underneath?
      As always, your input is appreciated!
