    Stairs profile

    How would you create stairs with this section (the cyan profile in the attached image)?

    So far the closest I can get using the stair´s type properties dialog is this: (see attached). Perhaps I am going to have to show the actual section in a 2D detail or in a section view with a Edit Cut Profile operation? I know it could be modeled in 3D but it´s one of those things where one has to decide between time invested vs. benefits.

      Alf, you "could" choose not to use the regular Treads at all, and instead model the Treads as custom Balusters (Railing with 1 baluster pr. tread)
      Just like Phil Read did at AU2009 (AB114-1 Insanely Great Stairs and Railings with Autodesk® Revit®)
      PS. Believe that Eric Wing did a similar class in 2009....

          Nosing Profile

          You can easily do that sort of tread as a nosing, Just create the nosing profile based on the tread dimensions. The Apply to a stair with a tread thickness less than the minimum depth of the nosing profile and the same width

          Try the attached file for a quick workup of the image you attached

          Hope that helps!

            Hey Ben, awsome tip. Talk about thinking "outside the square", tried a couple of different profiles, awsome !!

              This actually came up in the Mastering Revit 2011 series. I believe they gave two kinds of possibilities:
              1. Create as a baluster or
              2. Create a a nosing profile as shown above.
              I think for this particular instance I have to agree with Ben-May: Use Nosing Profile.

              BTW: Purchase the book Mastering Revit 2011!! The stairs section is AWESOME!!! (worth buying the whole book if you ask me)

                Nice, but if you look at the original post showing the profile, that is the front section of the whole stair, not the side view of one of the treads. In your example, the nosing profile has been applied as the section of the thread. Maybe the nosing profile does not work, then. Maybe the custom baluster is the only solution?

                  Alfredo,

                  What units are we in? Are the dimensions Centimeters?

                    I didnt realize the detail was a front view of the stair:banghead:.You can still create the steps with the nosing profile by applying to the "Front & Left" you can create the stringer with the stair as well, it will look fine in 3D but will need cleaning up in section. Wasn't sure on the units either, guessing they are centimeters
