How do I create a set of winder stairs?
Winders can be created using a variety of different methods, which include:
If the Split Landing option is also enabled when creating a U-Shaped staircase with winders, four, or five, treads are created depending on the Gap distance set. If the Gap distance is set to 11” or more, five treads will be created.
Winders that are created automatically using the L-Shaped and U-Shaped stair tools are converted to landings and can be modified further to your liking.
Winders created using the Stair Specification dialog must be created in a room with proper room definition.
You cannot create winders using this method in an area composed of only 2 corner walls. If this configuration is needed, enclose the area in with the Room Divider tool so that a room area is defined.
Alternatively, right-clicking and dragging will enable this alternate drawing mode as well.
The tread depth for a curved stair section (winder treads) is measured at the walk line. Simply set the tread depth of the curved stair section to your desired value and the treads will update accordingly.
To enable the display of the walk line in a floor plan view, open the staircase up to specification, select the Style panel, and place a check in the Show Walk Line box. For further information on walk lines, please refer your program's Help documentation.
