Im' trying to change the floor plan view of a sweep (2 risers, 1/2 circle stairs up to a platform)

The sweep is 45 degrees to the path - I want it to flare at the bottom (more like 60 degrees) - is this posssible?

 

Revit V 2017

 

Thanks for your help!

I'm not sure what you're trying to do - what do you mean by sweep path?  You can change the outline of the stair by editing it and converting it to a sketch based stair.

Thanks for your reply -

I was not able to figure out how to create a curved stair way so I added a 3-riser sweep profile to the wall supporting the platform.  The sweep runs perpendicular to the sweep path, so as a result there is a gap at both ends of the stairs.  I want to close the gap (in plan view)...???

It would be better to use the stair tool.  The stair in the image was started with a standard precast stair.  I then selected the run and went to Edit mode.  I then converted it and was then able to edit the sketch.

From your image, the sweep is always perpendicular to the path.  You can extend the sweep into the wall so that you do not see the gap.  If required, you could create a void to cut it back to the edge of the wall.

Thank you Tim123 - I would like to understand how to extend the sweep into the wall, but I have been scouring the internet looking for how to do this without any luck Sad

Meanwhile regarding using the stair tool, this has also been a challenge - I can do a winding stair with straight treads, just not a stair that is curved and flared at the ends...

Thanks again for helping!
