I am trying to build a set of stairs in which each tread is about an 1" longer than the one below.  This pattern follows all the way up the stais. How can I create these stairs... I tried using "creating stairs by sketching boudary"  However I had to create a boundary for each tread and Revit gives tells me I can only have two.  Any suggestions?

Is this what you wanted?  You cant have more than 2 boundry lines, but you can have 1 continuous line or a segmented line that is connected.  Let me know if you have more questions on this.

I believe in the file you attached (thank you by the way)... the risers were different heights... I am trying to make the tread lengths increase as you ascend the stairs.  I tried to edit the risers without changing the boundary line and I kept getting an error message that stated that the boundary was not attached... so I attached them all and still got the same error message.  Also can you explain how you have one continuous line? or the connected segmented line.  Thank you,

I belive that in the file all rises were 7" with an increasing tread.  The word doc. shows first, how to have 2 lines that will be considered a contiuous chain of boundry lines, the second shows the same length as one boundry line, and the third shows how to use a split boundry line to create a landing in your stairs.  You also must have them connected, so picture four wont work but the picture next to it is how that needs to be configured.  And the last picture shows 3 seperate boundry lines, which wont work in Revit.

 HTH

I was able to make the attached stairs by offseting the boundary line on the one side 1" and then extend the riser line to the offset line. Then draw a new boundary line connecting the two boundary lines and triming, then repeat for each tread.  As you can see though it make quite a mess of the stringer.

hi i know this post is old but bronco i was just wondering if you know how to get a different riser hight for the first and last riser as you have a different riser hight for the first riser in your example.

thanks.

 I looked through the stairs, and searched on AUGI and couldn't find a way to do this.  My guess is this is not an option in revit since this is banned by nearly every code.What I would do if I really HAD to do this is create one stair but have the bottom offset at 349.63, and then a second stair that goes from 0 to 349.63 with only two risers, and then line them up.  Your stringer wont look right in elevation.  It would look decent in all the views, but not great...only way I could think of.

 HTH
