Hi Jonas,

Thanks for using our StairFile Lite service. Here are your files…the PDF workshop document and all DXF files.

Please note, StairFile Lite is a processing service only. We haven’t checked your final design in any way.

If you need it reviewed and potentially revised, or full size templates of each part for printing, please order the StairFile Pro service: https://wooddesigner.org/member…..scounts/ 

For more details on the differences, click here: https://wooddesigner.org/stairf…..e-service/

Good luck with your build. Please let us know how it goes (it would be great if have time to upload pictures), and ask if you have any manufacturing queries.

All the best,

Stefan

Hi Ness,

made some changes and I think this is pretty much what I need.

Can you please export the cutting list and plans for this design?

Thanks,

-Jonas

Hi Jonas,

Your stair is a steep one, but I’ve tweaked a bit your design and it should work like this:

I attach the StairDesigner file so that you can play with it and add handrails, etc.

StairDesigner always draws the cut strings with curved edges and you’ll have to adjust the under edges when building the stair.

All the best,

Ness

Hi,

first of all, I’m impressed with the StairDesigner SW, been looking for quite a while for something just like this so I’m looking forward to trying it out.

In the mean time I thought I’d just ask for some advice on possible stair designs when there is very little space to fit a stair.

I have attached a picture with measurements of the space where the stair is supposed to go. As you can see it’s going to be quite tight. I realize that it may not be able to build a stair according to code but this is just for my guest house so I’m going to get away with it. The goal is however still to build the safest stair possible.

Attached is also an initial design(no handles etc yet) of a stair that I think might fit.

All comments are welcome.

Btw, is it possible to change the design of the cut stringers, it seems that the lower edge always has a curve to it?stairwell.jpgImage Enlarger

I would rather have straight edge since in my case I will have it supported but a lumber frame as it will house a closet underneath containing incoming water/electricity etc.

Thanks,

Jonas Ohlsson
