Hi Alex,

Thank you for answering.

I downloaded NanoCad and took a look at the drawing, but to be honest, I wouldn’t even know what to look for. The measurements seem to be the same as the ones I set in StairDesigner. So I guess they’re fine.

Since I’m building the risers as a timber frame, and cutting the steps myself, I can make minor adjustments when building it, so it’s ok if there are minor errors.

So: I’m happy with the file, please send me the files with the measurements.

Regards, Erik

Hi

Not having a stair nosing will not have a major impact on the comfort of your stairs.

To use the StairFile service, all you have to do is send us your staircase as you have done, and once you have confirmed that you are happy with it, we will edit the file for you.

I’ve attached the DXF3D export and the 3DS to check that the measurements comply with your expectations, in CAD or sketchup software for example.

Regards, Alex

Hi,

First-time stair builder and first-time StairDesigner user here. I’ve attached my project to this post.

We’re building a multi-flight stair, in a U-shape, but the middle flight has to be at an – approximately – 7.5 degree angle, due to the shape of the room. Except for the first 9 cm, which are straight.

My plan is to build a timber frame, instead of cutting proper risers, and close it off with plasterboard. This is why the right cut strings are offset by 12 mm. This is because we want to use the space bellow the stair for storage, but I also want the stair to be self-supporting. The reason for this is that the long wall is built from insulating concrete forms, so it would be hard to fasten a stringer to it. The other two walls are timer framing and concrete respectively.

I’ve opted for a design with no nosing, since my wife prefers this look. Will this impact the comfort of ascending the stair?

Since this is my first time designing and building a stair, any and all feedback is more than welcome.

I’m also wondering how I submit my design to the StairFileService?

Best Regards

Erik
