Hi Stuart, there was just one more issue to action from earlier, clicking a link in one of those emails to confirm your email address.

But you’ve done that now, you’re completely set up, there’s nothing else to do, thanks.

Hi

I’m getting regular emails asking me to complete my registration, but it then tells me I’m already registered.

Hi Stuart, it looks like your registration didn’t actually complete in full.

I’ve just done that for you so you can now login and access the technical forums.

You should also receive an email asking you to confirm your email address. Can you click on the link in that then you’re all set.

Thanks

Hi

I signed up for the support subscription yesterday, but I don’t have a ‘Create Topic’ link on the Technical forums. Does my account need to be upgraded?

Thanks

Thanks! I’m ready to start on the project now. I’d like to try out StairDesigner first, but I can’t locate a download link. Is the trial version available?

Thanks

Hi

I’m thinking of designing – and building – a staircase using your horizontal laminates technique for a central stringer. I saw in one of your articles that the example wasn’t completely designed in your software, so I’m not sure the best way to proceed. Perhaps you could advise?

I’d class myself as an amateur woodworker. I have access to a CNC machine and hire of space in a professional workshop.

I’ve attached an architect’s sketch of the kind of thing I have in mind. Will it stand up on a central cut string without vertical supports?

Thanks

Ahh… found the video on creating the laminate layers! So, I guess I download the free version of the software, design the stairs, plan the laminate layers, sign up for the StairFile Service to get the DXFs, CNC them, assemble over a full size plan for position, then cut the helix by hand. Have I missed anything?

All the CNC I’ve done has been out of ply. What timber suits the laminate layers, please, and will I have to prep the blocks with a planer to make sure it’s all flat and true?

What size cross section for the curved central cut string should I use in StairDesigner, please?

Thanks

-Stu
