Firstly, I am having issues with tread nosing. I am taking the dxf of the treads into another cad program and manually changing the the front edge of the treads to

rounded nosing. I also do the same on the newel posts to accept nosed treads On straight stairs this works fine but on winders there are gaps left on the newel posts supposedly where the treads enter the newel post at an angle. I would appreciate any advice on how to overcome this problem.

I have attached the SD file.


Secondly, as per the attached pic, this is the stringer 1 right, the dfx of the tread 1 does not indicate that it is cut short to butt up against the newel post plus it does not leave enough space for the riser to fit as per the others, you can see that riser 1 is narrower than the correct riser 2. I have searched the export settings and everything else and cannot see what to adjust to correct this but I am obviously overlooking something.

Thanks in advance.
