Hi Stig,

Yes, I’m sure that the back of the pockets are extended 28mm, I’m not sure why this came about.

If the stairs are painted filling in the pockets is certainly easier to do.

You’ll have to see directly with Stefan for compensation.

All the best,

Ness

Hi Sig,

Sorry to get back so late but I have been away this last week.

It seems that the step housings in the dxf parts are extended 28mm on the back edge.

This has only appeared in the sting dxf files and could be a configuration error in the dxf set up.

The only explanation I can see is that I’ve forgot to re-set the dxf config after using StairDesigner for another client, so I do apologize for this.

As the housing are already routed out, to fill the extra hole, I would suggest gluing  to the back edge of the steps, either a continuous batten:

or 2 gussets :

Both solutions should work and give an elegant finish.

Sorry again about my mistake,

All the best,

Ness

Hi,

Well, the stringboards are gonna be painted, so i guess it will be less work to fill 28mm of the back of the step-pocket.

Are you sure it is the back of the pocket that is extended ?

And…dont you think this is a money-back issue for the stair-file?

thx

Stig

Hi Ness,

I cut out all of the parts a while ago, and today i was about to fit them all together.

But…. All pockets in the stringboards ( for steps) is approx 28mm too wide !! And when i now check the drawings, i see the steps will not fit… How could this happen ?

Hi again,

I’ve deleted the last post and set the second flight to 3410 leaving 5mm clearance at each wall.

Can you check to see If this is OK for you and I’ll process your files.

All the best,

Ness

Hi,

I dont want a post on arrival, i have walls on both sides there, so i dont want any posts there.

ok about the mid steps.

It was meant to use the well size, but i didnt know how to. But if its 920mm between the stringboards (outside) on arrival, it is ok.

The length of the well is totally 3420mm, so maybe i should have a clearance of 5mm ?

thanks

Hi Sig,

Your new stair looks good.

The only questions I would have are

– I don’t see a post at the arrival is this normal?

Otherwise the stair has been set up using the inner dimensions and it usually would be better to use the outer or stair well dimensions and let StairDesigner calculate the inner sizes.

In the attached example I’ve added a last post and adjusted the mid steps to straight, this is just not to have steps that are very slightly tapered which can make sorting pieces confusing.

If there is no problem I can send you the manufacturing files .

All the best,

Ness

Hi Stig,

I’ve changed the StairDesigner model of you stair so that the steps are recessed 15mm and notched around the posts.

Here are the new DXF files, hope this is helpful.

Note that you will have to adjust some steps and reduce the recess as in this example….

You have to cut the step so that the notch doesn’t wrap around the post and not recess the string.

All the best,

Ness

Hello Ness,

I would like to buy some DXF files(plans) for same stair, only with new measurements ( for 2nd floor)
