Hello Henrick,

Thanks for posting your project on the forum.

In StairDesigner you can only add up to 7 flights.

A better way to design curved stairs is to set up straight flights joined by curved sections. 

You can have a look at this video to see how to do this:

https://wooddesigner.org/member…..dal-stair/

Once the stair designed StairDesigner will give all the development of the curved parts and the shape of all the steps.

You can print these out using our StairFile service.

To access the StairFile service you’ll have to be Full Member.

You can build this stair in glued laminated plywood but I would suggest you use our horizontal laminated technique.

This make building faster and simpler.

I have lots of articles on this technique on our blog:

Or here on Wood Designer :

Good luck with this great project.

All the best,

Ness

I have designed a fairly simple curved stair – see attachment.
I have made the curve by using multiple flights.
Is there limitations in the numbers of flights I can use?
I want to use a flight at every stair in order to get a perfect curve (another way of designing the curve wouldn’t bother me at all).
And secondly, can I print all the drawings of my curved construction out?
I´m planning to build the stair in glued, laminated plywood (privat project).

Brgds. Henrik
