    Slanted Stringer

    I suspect this is a lost cause, but - since I know you guys love to force Revit to do things it doesn't want to - I figured I'd throw this out there.
    I've got a simple utility stair - just 5 risers, and a platform at the top.
    My problem is that I can't get the Stringer on the platform to stay flat. It wants to slope as if it was in-line with the rest of the steps. Which it probably is.
    I assume the only way I can do this is to add a small Floor instead of trying to jack with the top tread. But its fun to try.

    I made two Stair Types. The only difference between them is one ends with a Riser, and one ends with a Tread.

    Enjoy!

    In the stair sketch, did you split the boundary line that represents that stringer at the flat part or is it one continuous line?
    sorry, don't have revit up at the moment or I'd look at the file.

      Looks to me like you need to split the boundary at the last riser, then select the boundary segment that represents the "flat" stringer and select "Flat" from the slope options in the option bar. The other options are Auto-detect and Slope. Do this for both sides. Should fix it.

        I just went thru something very similar. Revit doesn't like top or bottom landings. You can, however, create a flat stringer with railings without a landing by manipulating the boundary lines...like shown in the images.

            Learn something new every day. I didn't know you could do this. Very cool. Thanks.

              Yep. Carl's "slotution" did it. (Don't worry, that's the way I type, too)
              I had split the Boundary line, but I forgot about that danged Options Bar.
              I was looking for the Slope in the Properties.

              Thanks! (More green boxes)
