Hi

I have tried different parameters /settings to model a staircase with glass railngs, however it has always got "broken glass" and wrong stringers and landings....

Please see the attached picture.

Do you know how to

1. model glass railings without broken joints

2. model glass railings with timber handrails on top correctly

3. make the tringers and landing deck at the same leve without changing other strings position

4. make the stringer on the top have a even rectangle shape, not keystone shape

 

Thank you

There are so many different ways to create railings.  I suggest you google some of the answers that are already out there.  In many cases, multiple railings are easier to do.  One that is just glass - no panels, no mosts, just 1 defined rail wich is the glass profile and then another railing which is your handrail (and any posts).

 

Seperate out questions 3 and 4 with some images to show what you are asking.   I know I have never had a "keystone" shape stringer so I don't have a clue how you got one.   (Although I could make one)

Hi

Thank you very much for your reply.

Question3 means that I want to lower the stringer down to match the other parts. (please see Q3.jpg)

However if I change the stringer carriage height or landing carriage height, it becomes Q3-1.jpg

How can I fix it?

For question 4, please see Q4.jpg.

I don't know why it comes up with a  "keystone shape" stringer.

Thank you again

It appears you streched out your last tread to use as your upper platform and that is incorrect and that is why the framing is wrong at the top.  Use a floor at the top.

 

The landing carriage height can be set independent of the stringer carriage height.  That dimension is down from the top of the surface.  The junction of these can be set.

 

I don't understand your middle image.  Do you have a third stringer instead of just the two side stringers?

Hi

 

Thank you very much for your tips.

It works now for the stringers and landing :-)

So we can forget the middle image.

I just wonder if it is possible to make the top platform as part of the staircase, instead of making a floor ?

So when we make schedules in the future, we won't have a extra floor to pay since this floor is actually included in the staircase in reality.

 

Thank you very much.

Autodesk still needs to improve the stair process to allow for a top landing sketch.  The problem is that the stringers around the landing would be a problem - can't have those going acoross the door....

 

As far as schedules..... We add a parameter in the project to ALL categories called DO NOT SCHEDULE.  We have our schedules set with a filter to exclude all elements with that parameter set to 'X'.

Hi

I have tried to google for the answer, but haven't found the right answer.

I would like to have the glass right between the stringr and the handrail. however some parts of the glass are always higher or lower than the handrail / string.

Please see the attached jpg, how can I fix it?

Thank you.
