Hi Michel,

I’ve sent the question to the developers at Boole.

Let’s see what they have to say.

cheers,

Ness

Hi Ness

i checked this on V6 and it seems to be the same problem. Handrial and styringer needs to have the same thickness

another weird behavior of version 7 is when you input the angle manualy in the handrail field and you use the same angle as the automatic angle then suddenly the banisters are getting much longer. You can clearly see it happening in the 3d view. When the same is done on the stringer level then nothing changes. 

So I guess the problem has to be found around the handrail calculations. I guess these problems are related to eachother

regards

Hi Ness ,

I think i found the problem. This must be addressed to the developpers. When the string has not the same width as the handrail then the angle is starting to get different. Only when they are the same the angle remain the same and this should not be influencing any angle.

Hi Michel,

I get the same angle automatically on the sting and handrails.

Can you post and example stair?

All the best,

Ness

Hi Ness,

in V7 i can only get then the same by manual input of the angle . The automatic version is not the same . 

I just start a new stair from the models. It comes up with curved stringer and handrail. I go to the 3D visual and click on the stringer and choose straight. Then the automatic angle pops up . I do the same with the handrail and then the automatic angle is also set but they are different from eachother. I wonder how you do it ?

regards

Hi Michel,

Sorry to answer this post so late, but it got a bit lost in my todo list.

To answer your question, I have already raised this question with the development team at Boole and haven’t had a clear answer why the handrail can’t follow the string.

In v6 there was some calculation problems and v6 is no longer under development.

In v7 with straight string and handrail the angles are the same:

 hr-angle.pngImage Enlarger
 

I attach the stair example.

hope this is helpful.

All the best,

Ness

PS: Thanks for answering questions on the forum, your help is much appreciated.

Hi Ness,

Can you check this one? According to what I see on the screen the handrail and stringer are not running perfectly parallell so the banisters are not the same size in the same flight ? Am I doing something wrong ? this is stairdesigner 6. Only with a straight sigle flight the banisters seem to be correct but i can not read any size 

I experience the same in stairdesigner 7 . When I choose handrail and stringer straight they do not have the same angle. There i correct them by entering the same angle on both. Why in the first place is v7 giving different angles to handrail and stringer in the same flight ??

Why is this ?

regards

Michel
