    Concrete Stair creation question

    Hi all,
    Is there a way to create concrete stairs that are flush with the ground? It's for a pool, but Revit's native way to make stairs gives the underside a slope. I want the entire underside to be filled with concrete. See attached pic.

    TIA
    John

    Yes in the run properties there is an option for Structural Depth, make that value large and it will fill in. Might want to duplicate the run type first

      That's close! But see the attached images. The one that looks like stairs is set to a stepped underside with a 2' thickness. The one that looks like a ramp is a smooth underside with a 2' thickness. The second one is not what I expected would happen. I've tried thickening the stepped underside to a ridiculous thickness, but it still has that little block left unfilled. Any more ideas?

        Don't build it as a stair.

            Draw stair in elevation (2d) then extrude to the correct stair width:
            .................................................. .......................................
            Use the stair you have already modelled as a guide (+ your red line)
            ie draw a flat 2d elevation of the stair using simple linework - then extrude
            ................
            Hope this helps

                I guess this means you need to upgrade to 2016... I can reproduce your issue in 2015, although works in 2016

                    Thanks for the tips guys. I went with MP's suggestion and created an in place family. Works well enough. 2016 is coming to this office in about a month. Looking forward to it!
