In the meantime, there is a very brief summary and example model in post below on how currently Stairs:-

See if it make sense to you and suggestion welcome.
You can find that information in the FreeCAD repository in github. For architecture field, Yorik is the main active developer for ArchWB, DraftWB and BIMWB (and IFC expert). But there are other people who make small contributions in these Workbenches, too. Anyway, the development of FreeCAD workbenches for Arch and BIM has been significant in the las 3 years. Your feedback is valuable because the FreeCAD users are fron mechanical design mainly. We lack of users from Architecture or BIM industry to test FreeCAD.
Yes, I am kind of feeling a calling to promote the usability of Freecad as a BIM tool to draw more attention to the tool and hopefully more developers, where my position in a big architectural company could possibly help of drawing attention from some of the internal dev teams at architecture firms (definitely as a start inside of my company, HOK).

I had a chat with Pablo Vasquez from the Blender institute at a conference in London in which I was presenting and he gave some good tips about promotion - exploit the possible link with Blender to draw in audience from that community and test it doing "real" project, as they do real movies with Blender and Godot will be doing an video-game. I know Yorik uses it professionally and probably others out there (?), which is great.
For the Architecture Industry, to produce so many drawings sheets of a single project can be a difficult challenge for FreeCAD (I am thinking in TechDraw WB).yorik wrote: ↑Thu Jun 27, 2019 3:14 pm
Of the "big problems" I see of using FreeCAD for BIM (working with large files and producing 2D drawings, basically), the first one is in large part solved by working with Arch References (we still need to make IFC import faster), and the second one I still have no clear idea how to best solve, it needs more testing...
