Hi Duayne,

The feedback from the developers is that they will not be able to include T-Shape stairs in short to medium-term plans. So it can take a while before this will become available.

Hi Kirk,

No, You cannot send them back to SD but you can edit the stairs to fit already in SD. The export to SketchUp is only to see if the fit is correct. If some details are not possible to edit in SD you can always edit the DXF part in a cad program (AutoCAD) before coding the parts for machining. 

You have to process them as 2 separate stairs.

Hi Kirk,

This option is currently not available in stairdesigner. The only possibility to make a split stair is using a quarter-turn stair with landing. Make another straight flight stair and combine the 2 stairs in SketchUp using the 3ds output. You will have to edit the stringers and align some components to make them fit correctly.

Once stitched together , can you send them back to StairDesigner for parts manufacturing ?

Hi There,

Can anyone help me with getting stair designer to make a split staircase?

I need to get a design done to show a client.

Thanks,
