    Switchback stairs sketch boundary overlap help

    I am trying to create stairs by sketching, the problem is, that they are switchback stairs, that extend two stories. Because of this, naturally, the boundaries are going to overlap while drawing the boundary in 2d, rendering the sketch invalid, thus not allowing me to complete the stair despite those areas being below not being an issue. How can this be done?

    If you're in 2018/19 use the multi level stair tool
    Or...
    In earlier version you can use the component stair tool, set the base and top levels, the continue to draw runs around and over each other until you get to the top. It can be a giant PITA though to get every run starting and finishing at the correct elevation.
    Or...
    Just draw 2 stairs, one for each level. If the levels are identical heights you can just copy/paste from one to the next.

      RevitCat has some good info on stairs - it is worth a look as well: RevitCat: Revit Stairs & Railings Index Page

        I always draw the stairs above with 1 mm offset from the level under it, so i can still adjust it after placing.
