In our architecture office we try to draw our buildings the way they are being constructed (note: I live in Belgium).

Being able to add a notch at the top of a precast stair is already a great improvement when it comes to realistic drawing.

However: there is a triangular gap under the connection. In reality the manufacturer adds a corner to fill this void and create a continious, horizontal plane. Revit doesn't seem to be able to do this. Right now we just add filled regions to fix this, but I would like to be able to draw this in 3D.

Secondly: the structure part of the stair joins the floor just fine, but the tread doesn't. Revit just shows both materials. Is there a way to show either? Or the tread or the floor? I do not have a tread profile specified, could this be the issue?

Note: I'm using Revit 2014.

I don't recommand to make models exactly like real building. use detail lines and annotations.

but if you insist, make one as a component family.

here is an example i created.

don't miss the link for the family file at the explanation.

hope it helps.

Thanks for the reply. The component family doens't seem too convenient when you have L-shaped stair or winded stair. I guess we'll have to use annotations. We would have liked to be able to solve this in 3D as is limits the worktime when creating a new section.

The point of using a program like REvit is the make a BIM model with as much info as possible.

i agree, but input efficiency is also important i guess.

i make model in 3d when it's convinient and efficient, not just possible. there is nothing impossible in Revit if you have enough time you know. Smile
