Using Revit 2011.

So, I know this is perhaps a rediculous idea, but I was thinking of trying it.

We use one stair style repeatedly (hourglass shape, convex treads, veneered stringers, with a shaped opening in the floor).

I was thinking of creating a family of just this one stair, but I can't think of how I'm going to create the stringers. I realize I can't get an extrusion to slope, I can't bring in a wall, so I'm not sure if I can do this.

So, ought I just to forget it & keep trying to get things right with the Revit "Stairmaker"? Or has anyone attempted this idea?

I worked for a developer who used winder stairs all the time. Revit hates winders so we made families and it worked fine. Model geometry should not be a problem as the modelling tools can do most things. The thing to watch is how it displays in different floor plans, and bear in mind you lose the automatic dashed lines, cut lines, arrows and notes.

Check out the new stair features for 2013.  I believe you will be upgrading instead.

If you use the same stringer create a profile of it and use a railing as your stringer.  I agree with WWhub, 2013 stairs are leagues ahead, great changes!

Hey thanks guys....

I now won't wait to do the upgrade. I've hated doing odd stairs. Was having trouble upgrading to 2012 here. Don't know why. Time to call in to "Help". Now that I have a week to breathe..... Spring rush & all that.... You all know it, I'm sure.

 

Thanks again,

Susan
