Stair with Landings at Both Ends

I made the Video posted below after receiving an email asking about an earlier post.

How long have I been using Revit? 7 years maybe? How many times have I gone on AUGI to look stuff up? Thousands. Never for this issue tho. Until I watched this video, I didn't know how to get the stringers to stay flat! When you clicked on that option it was like in the movies when God appears and that music plays. You know the music I'm talking about, ahhhh haaaaa!

Thanks Steve!

How do you avoid the too many risers error? The stair only want 6, yet you drew 8,

Steve said...

The keys are: base and top constraints and their offsets combined with the options for end with riser and start with riser. When you use the combination I show, no error. You need to make sure the stair isn't trying to get to a higher elevation than necessary.

I don't believe this works in Revit 2010...I just tried in both...works in Revit 2011, but not in Revit 2010...bah! Thanks for the post...good tutorial!

It should, I've been doing it for years now.

Um, on second thought, are you working in a workset project by any chance? If so you are probably getting the can't have more boundaries message?

That's not the technique, that's a bug in workset projects. You have to sketch the boundary (stringers) as if they are one segment and then cut them.

Alternatively you can sketch the stair in a non-workset file and copy/paste the finish stair sketch into a stair sketch in the project and it will finish.

I've written about this issue before in the blog too.
