I have a nasty set of stairs, between some levels I have 2 run sets and other levels 3 run sets so multi-storey stairs are not possible (I think). The issue I am having is joining the landing from one set of stairs to the stringers on the next set of stairs the same way Revit creates the joins for mid-landings (see pic). I am creating a set of steel stairs where both landings and mid-landings will be constructed by the stair contractor and will be the same steel structure. Please advise if you know a solution to this problem. I am on Revit 2014.

 

Thanks

Have you tried modeling this as one staircase with several landings?

This way Revit will create continious stringers.

KimTaurus,

Can you show us how to do what you suggest.  Unless something has changed that I don't know, Revit has never allowed stairs to be sketch that fold back on themselves.  That is why we have multi-level stair settings.  Three run sets are typically not possible if the third run is overtop of the first run.

Thanks for the responses, I also have riser heights that vary from level to level so unless you can overlap runs and adjust their riser heights to correctly meet levels I don't think this solution is possible. For now, I have deleted portions of the stringers that are giving me join issues and inserted a model in place sweep to correctly display the stringers but I hate how this solution is not parametric.

In 2014 you can use stair by component and draw stairs right on top of each other. You can draw whatever lengths you need to get you up to your landings.

 

I didn't realize you had different RISER heights on each run, if that is the case you will need to do this as all seperate stairs. You may want to even do this without stringers and add them in with beams (C channels) after.

Progress! but can you adjust riser heights between levels when you overlap stair runs as you have? The issue I'm having now is that my landings are not flush with my levels with exit doors because I have levels that do not yield equal riser heights over an continous overlapped stair.

@WWhubb: My suggestion was to do as Teafoe5 showed.

If each run has different riser height you indeed have to draw them as seperate stairs.

Worst case scenario is you model the staircase as model-in-place. Though it is definatly not recommended.
