Hi Stu,

Michel has transferred this post to me, I’m guessing he hopes I’ve had experience in outdoors stairs.

Unfortunately I have no experience in outdoor stairs except to say that wood is not a good option if continuously exposed to the elements.

I have always advised metal or cement / stone stairs if there is no cover for rain and sun.

Best regards,

Ness

Hi Michel

My project has been delayed by Covid. I hope to make the stair in the new year.

But I may have another project I’d like to ask you about: Have you made a stair for outdoors from a material that can be CNC cut?

Thanks

Stuart

Thanks. I have NanoCAD, and the files open fine. Looks like the curved section of my StairDesigner file has come out in straight sectors in the 2D DXF:

Hi Stuart 

there is nothing wrong with the Dxf files. I do not know inkscape. You can download nanocad5 for free.

Hi Michel

I’m trying to open the DXFs in Inkscape. Getting the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):

File “dxf_input.py”, line 530, in <module>
inkex.errormsg(_(‘%d ENTITIES of type POLYLINE encountered and ignored. Please try to convert to Release 13 format using QCad.’) % polylines)
NameError: name ‘_’ is not defined

I’m afraid it doesn’t mean much to me! I think they should open in a 2D program, shouldn’t they?

Thanks

Stu
