Hey Guys,

Im struggling pretty hardcore with stairs.  I'm trying to make a flight with 2x12 treads and stringers, open riser, for utility access.  I attached a CAD file with the exact design I want.  At one point I actually got the top run at the correct height!

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated guys!

Stairs are tricky. And the stair tool in Revit has to be complicated to try to allow users to build a wide variety of stairs. But it will struggle to do complicated stair designs. Unfortunately I can't open your DWG, so I might suggest you upload an image file shlwing your stair design instead.Trying to explain how to use the stair tool in Revit here will take a lot of time. So you really need to read up on how to use the tool yourself. There are plenty of resources available online for that including: hardest part in Revit is understanding what stairs can be done using the Revit tool and what can't. But at the end of the day, you want to be efficient in your work time and spending all day trying to work out how to model a stair using the stair tool may be a waste of time, when you could have modelled it in an 1 hour using the in-place family tool. And the in-place family tool is a very simple way of generating accurate stairs as it offers the flexibility of doing whatever geometric shape your design wants, rather than being restricted by the stair tools limited design options.I hope this helps.
