Hi Reodor,

It’s best to have the finished sizes to start designing the stair.

But if you have approximate sizes and positions it’s easy to make a preliminary project that can be adjusted to the final stair well dimensions when you have them.

This one of the beauties of use software tweaking dimensions is easy.

You could post a drawing of your project and we could give you some advice.

If you are inexpérienced and you project is complex I would suggest you purchase our StairFile Pro service .

This service will enable me to pass time revising your project indepth before you get the print outs.

You can buy this service on the members services page here:

All the best,

Ness

Hoi Reodor,

You’ll need at least A1 size printer to print full size. 

I can send you the prints in tiled A3 but it’s not very convenient to have to tape everything together.

The best way to do this is usually to find a professional printer service near by.

In my area I have someone who prints for architects and he prints plans full size at very low cost.

He even delivers, so  though I have a full size A0 printer in my office I rarely use it now as it’s quicker and cheaper for me to send him and email with the PDF files and he delivers the print outs to my door step for around 30€.

Hope this is helpful,

All the best,

Ness

Hi Reodor, thanks for your message. There is no time limit on how long you can use the software.

If you pay for the full version of the software, you’ll need to first install the free member version and send us the user code. We’ll then generate an activation code that you put into the software to unlock the full set of features.

Please click here for more info: https://wooddesigner.org/softwa…..ices-faqs/

All the best,

Stefan

Here’s my reply…

Hi Jackson,

Thanks very much for your message. There are a few options open to you…

1. Buy StairDesigner

You can buy StairDesigner for £987 or for £888 (10% off) if you are a Full member of Wood Designer. If you’re going to be working on lots of projects, this might be the best option long term.

2. Sign up as a Full member and continue to use the free version of StairDesigner

However, if you’re working on a single project, I doesn’t really make sense to buy StairDesigner. The free version you’ve already downloaded does everything the paid version does. The only difference is you cannot output the manufacturing documents…cuttings lists, plans and so on.

Instead, sign up for Full membership. One of the key benefits is that we’ll process your design file and send you the manufacturing documents for up to 1 project a month. So you can continue to use the free version and get everything you need to build your stairs. All for the price of your monthly membership subscription.

Exclusive to Full members, you can also pay a little extra for a StairFile Pro service where we’ll check over and help you finalise your design, and send you all the manufacturing documents once it’s ready to go. At £95, this is a very affordable way to complete your design with confidence.

Here are a couple of threads on our forum where members have gone the StairFile Pro route so you can see the kind of support you’ll get:

https://wooddesigner.org/forum/…..e-landing/
https://wooddesigner.org/forum/…..on-a-boat/

3. Use one of our approved suppliers

I noticed you are a designer, so if you’re focusing on the design element only, and are going to outsource the build, we can find you one of our approved suppliers who already use our software. You don’t even need Full membership to access this service. Just send us your finished design, we’ll check it over, and then find you a partner to work with.

The start of the Wood Designer Tour gives some more information on your options here, which apply to furniture just as they do to stairs: https://wooddesigner.org/overview/

In terms of getting started, here’s a suggested list,

Our Stair Quick Start Guide: https://wooddesigner.org/member…..ick-start/
Then on to the first part of your Stairs Core Training which goes in to more detail about each aspect of the software: https://wooddesigner.org/member…..sic-setup/

But if you are still at all stuck, please login with your Free member username and password and ask any questions you have on the forum. We’d love to be able to help you get your stairs designed.

All the best,

Stefan

Hi, I’ve just received this message from Jackson who is keen to get started with a stair project. I’m posting the correspondence here for the benefit of all members…

I maybe interested in purchasing this program for a project I am working on. I wanted to know what the cost was and also, need to help in designing a stair case. I have already downloaded the free version but not sure how to get started.
