Hi Andy,

To get a PDF file to print you have to use our StairFile Pro service.

If you sign up as a full member you can use the free StairFile Lite service and we will send you all the documents to build the stair in DXF and a PDF workshop document that contains scaled drawings of the parts and cutting lists, but no full size templates.

To print PDF full size templates you’ll have to load the DXF into a CAD program and print from CAD.

The StairFile Pro will enable me to revise your design to make sure it’s optimised and workable and I’ll also send you all the PDF full size templates ready to print.

Hope this is helpful,

All the best,
