    we use these stairs a lot in Holland, but I never really got it to work nicely in Revit with the stairs tool. You can get pretty close with the sketch tool, but stuff like risers will not look very good in the turns.

      so what do you think will be the best approach, regular extructions?

        Does the U-Shaped Winder that is built-in not work? I don't know enough about that type of stair to know where the issues are, but at least at a glance it looks fine to me...

          Hi krusty2k1,

          I am using Revit 2018, and created the stair by sketch.

            It all depends on how nice and exact you want your stairs to be, but from what I have done with these kinds of stairs, that is the only way to get them to look right

            Some of the things that are not right in the image below. For a plan view that is OK and probably for a early design it is too, but for CD's I would not want one of those in my model.

            As with the other stairs above a lot of small things that are just not right

                A few of those things you can get a bit better, but overall the stairs tool sucks for these kinds of stairs. Problem is for residential in Holland I think 90% of all homes have a stair like that, so I believe that a lot of companies are building them by hand or get them from a manufacturer, some of which do IFC and a lot of which do imported dwg

                  As a general note - System Families in Revit are good for creating content that is in the LOD 200-300 zone. The small things that Robin has highlighted, which aren't quite perfect with the U Winder tool, are things I feel are in the LOD 350-400 zone, and would be picked up through enlarged details (utilizing detail components, lines, and regions to assist in heightened accuracy). Is this not the case?
