@Yorik, no it doesn't show 'sketch + sortEdges() problem', i use another workflow.... lazy to capture the moment and debug what exactly is wrong at the moment :)

… I was looking for an easy / closed procedure to model something like this kind of staircase.
Ok understand now :)

There seems some macros available, not sure if they are still valid, and some other video / tutorial for that...

But no simpler direct solution to my understanding... in ArchStairs, there is a Winder property but it was not implemented.

.... Seems there are so many different design that 'pre-built' models may not likely be available to fit. On one hand, it needs resources to build codes / template for different models, and on the other problems in adding parameters to allow variations. I have not used Revit etc. but peoples like Regis, Yorik pointed out the problems and complexity in using those stairs tools.

... Maybe another approach, and hopefully not another series of problem, thinking if tools here whilst can produce the model, also produce underlying sketches so users can tweak the sketches to produce custom design model - discussion in Civil Engineering thread... maybe that are other complexities.

… thanks paullee.
Now it is simple enough. => the last YouTube link showed/reminded me to use the "z-interval axis" feature.
( I hope to never forget it again…)
Final version (no more "stairs")

.... found some bugs in the progress, good for debugging :D
Railing disposition is not correct when Align is "Right" :(

Fixed now :)

Hello
the stair-building tool is getting really powerful, but as I experimented, I discovered a missing feature, the thickness of the riser.
it would be nice to add this property.
thank you,

Hi, is Tread Thickness in below screencapture what you want?

Which FC version you are using?

BTW there are bugs e.g. in Align property in the current 0.18_pre version I had fixed but had not Pull Request yet - trying to tackle curvilinear railing but not successful being beginner in python :)

Hi, I created 3d wires with curvilinear LineSegment for railing but found many problems :(

One being FC crash occasionally - e.g. select the RailingWire in attached file and and apply ArchPipe and it crash.

With straight wire, no problem so far, no idea any problem with the wire or otherwise.

No urgency though :)

I think you mean the vertical piece / finishes other the the horizontal tread and the stair structure itself right?

Hmm... geometric problem to resolve ... and another is how to apply different material on different parts of the Stairs itself for it to be useful :) Need to see if the master (Yorik) has any direction :D

BTW, what in native English the term for 'thickness of the riser' ?

Hi again.

@Renato Rebelo ask if the "thickness of the riser" could be added in the Stairs.

Whilst this is another geometric problem to solve, it raise another issue I have not looked into.

For the current many 'parts' of Stairs - structure, tread, stringer, railing - how could different materials be 'applied' to it (and successfully output to IFC)?

BTW, is Window (glass panel / frame /...), Wall etc. with different materials layer working currently?

Thanks for any idea :)

yes I mean the vertical part, as in the image
