    Steel Staircase

    Is there a way to create a stair that uses structural components ie: channel stringers, steel pans and concrete treads, without creating each individual piece and placing it along the stair path? I need to cut sections through stairs to detail them.

    In your stair properties you can assign a profile to the various parts.

    I don't work a lot with modeled stair systems, but from my experience you can use structural components in the way of "profiles".
    If you are using an "assembled stair" (as opposed to the monolithic or precast stairs), you can go into the type properties. To change the stringer type, you'll click on either "right support type" or "left support type" which should open a new box "System Family: Stringer". In this box you can change the stringer information, such as profile and materials. You may need to import more profiles into your project in order to get the structural component you'd like.
    Back in the type properties of the stairs, if you click on "run type", it should take you to a window where you can change both nosing and tread profiles, as well as other information.
    Once you load these components in and create your stair type it will go much faster in the future.

    I hope this at least helped a little!

    Hi,
    Another way is to use the Railing for the stringers. Then you can load/use any profile you like.
