HI Duayne,

To know the printer size the easiest thing is to print the cutting list.

In this stair the largest part is step 9 at 666mm wide so the best would be to have a continuous roller printer at least this wide.

StairDesigner can tile the prints so that you can print templates on any printer, but in general it’s much better not to have to assemble more than 2 or 3  sheets, so A4 printers are really not a good idea!

I attach the pdf cutting list of the stair.

All the best,

Ness

Hi Jarmy,

The extra 7mm on the stair rule is of no importance, the stair is a nice safe and easy to climb.

I attach the working documents.

The easiest is to print the DXF files 1:1 using Draftsight or another CAD program.

If you don’t have a big printer the best is to print them 1:1 to a PDF file using something like PDF Creator and send them to a professional printer.

This enables you to glue the paper directly onto the boards with sprayed glue and cut using the paper drawings, so no marking out.

It makes it fast and accurate.

If you can’t get to a printer you can use the dimensions in the workshop documents for the steps.

For the strings you will have use CAD to add dimensions and mark them out by hand.

All the best,

Ness

Hi Ness,

the software is grate, if the new wersion will fix issues like I listed, than it will be perfect!  🙂

Now I can live with the limits, I will ignore the handrails and I will make longer handrails where needed…

In your wersion the “OK” button in the stairwell parameters is now red. As I see the stair rule is on the limit. 

If you suggest to design it like this, please send me the plans. (Otherwise please change the parameters as it should be.)

Do I have to print the palans 1:1 size on a plotter, or is it a small drawing with measurements on it?

Thanks,

Márton Jármy

Hi Jarmy,

Thanks for posting your project on the forum.

For your project StairDesigner has certain limits that we are working on in the next version, but for the time being:

– you can’t delete handrails from individual flights, so they are displayed and just have to be ignored in the drawings and cutting lists

– the same goes for cut strings, so you can’t elimiate the second flight eft stringer

– cut strings are drawn in their general shape but it’s not possible to change the shape in StairDesigner, you have to modify either on the DXF files or on the paper print outs

– assembly details are not drawn on the cut strings, so they have to be added manually also.

I attach your stair with a few tweaks that should work if you manually add the detailing.

All the best,

Ness

Dear Ness,

Before printing my plans I would like to ask you to check my project and I have some questions:

– I dont need the handrail on the first and second flight but I was not able to remove it 

– I would need the newel post 5 and 6  with  zero offset to the cut strings. (This would be fixed to the first floor) In 3D mode it looks it is aprox with 5 cm offset (But the “Position point” is set to 0)

– at the third flight the left cut string looks strange for me: the bottom has a twist in it wich I am not able to produce with the wood and I think it is not necessary in this way.

– at the second flight also the left string is not necessary, my idea is to connect the steps into the 10×10 cm newel post

– the material is pine wood. Is 20 cm enough for the cut string or it has to be 25 cm as it is setup now? 

The main parameters are: High of the stair: 289 cm, open area of the first floor (base of the stair) : 170 x 232 cm, walls are on the right side of the first and second flight. (The other two sides are looking to the living room.)

Thank you in advance for your help and other suggestions regarding this project.
