Hi Adamd,

Can you start a new topic and give some more details about what you are planning to build.

That makes it easier for us to follow through your project with you and help you if you need it.

All the best,

Stefan

Hello Ness, I checked it is very nice design. I will follow this for making stair in my house.

Hi Steve,

 

I usually set the stair up roughly by eye and then adjust to the absolute angle.

It seems that this time I forgot to correct the angle of the steps to put them precisely at 0° and 90°.

So here are the corrected files.

The string board dims are the smallest rectangle. In general you will set the string out by assembling several boards.

I have drawn a possible board assembly the dwg files I have added to the parts folder.

The best thing to do is to redimension the separate parts the curved gussets can be glued on later.

Note that StairDesigner doesn’t draw the cut string top post assembly lines but will draw the strings upto the theorectical position of the next cut string.

To show you how this works, I have drawn in the exact assembly lines on the parts dwg drawings.

Sorry about my mistake on the step angles.

All the best,

Ness

 

hope this is helpful

Hi Ness,

Thank you very much for the design templates.

I am not familiar with the conventions used on some of the drawings and would like some guidance please .

The printed sheets show angles for each tread 0.00 for the first step, -1.86 for the first landing then 0.16 for step 3 decreasing to 0.02 for step 10.

However, I am not sure about which axis the angle is bieng measured and what units are bieng used to measure the angle. I assume the angle is measured in a plane perpendicular  to the nose of the step and is in degrees, but would like to be certain.

Lastly, the ‘right string board 2’ is given as Dimensions 3930 x 656 are these the dimensions of the smallest rectangle from which the ‘S’ shaped string could be cut and also, between which points is the angle 34.2 degrees measured?

Kind regards

Steve

Hi Steve,

Here’s a design with a post on the right.

 I would suggest that this design works well and would not myself make a cut string on the right of the landing. I would leave the boxed string and add the handrail with balusters assembled into its upper edge.

You’ll need to design the details of the bull noses in CAD if you machine with CNC or directly onto the printed templates if you build by hand.

All the best,

Ness

Hi Ness,

Sorry the attachment did not load, although its smaller than the limit, so I have put it in the dropbox link in post 6.

Kind regards

Hi Ness,

Thank you very much for the improvement, it looks good.

There is going to be a rail at the end of the first landing, to match the other rail on the left. I thought a newal post would be needed under the right hand end under the landing to match the one on the left. A matching bullnose to the right of the first step as you suggest on the left would complete the stair.

I have made a rough sketch Image 12 attached.

Kind regards

Steve

Hi steve,

You already have a post under the 1st landing.

I would suggest that :

– the handrail start at a first post on the landing  

– that you make the first step with a bullnose or curtail.

– that the lower string shape be adjusted
