    BIM Staircase

    Hi. Just to check, what is the recommended workflow when we are working on BIM Staircase?
    Our project structural engineer insisted that architect should come up with the 3D model so that they will know the design intend then they will use it for calculation and if need to, they will make necessary changes.
    The Autodesk expert advise us, structural elements should come from structural discipline.
    Can anyone share the workflow which works?
    And if arch is to do the finishes for staircase, do we do it as a very thin layer of stair (like how we do for floor) or we need to copy monitor the struct's stair, and modify from there?
    Thank you very much.

    Your engineer is right. The architect needs to show the design intent. Model the stair how you would like it to look. With regard to the finishes, it depends on what kind of stair you would like - there are different approaches for the different kind of stairs.
    Your Autodesk consultant is also right - structural elements are added by the structural engineer. However, Revit considers the stair as an architectural element - if you look under the structural section, you do not see an option for stairs. So once the stair is modelled, let the SE determine the structural requirements for the stair.

    So how the coordination process works? Arch model the stair, send to struct. (They copy monitor?) Make adjustment, then send back their model, so we replace our arch stair and use theirs instead? Then we add all the finishes onto their model ( it's just a precast concrete stair with tiled finishes).
    I am a bit confused on how to split the finishes from the struct stair.

    Draw your stair as a precast stair. You will see in the stair run properties that there are options for having a different finish. After the engineer has commented, you can just adjust the structural depth to suit.
