Hi Hasse ,

I made a small video showing you what I did to get the connection. However it possible that when you displace or enlarge the newel that suddenly cutstrings are disappearing. This is because the newel is cutting through a step from front to back. This creates that problem.

Ness can surely give you more information on this if this is reported as a bug or not.  

regards

Michel

I have now spending hours to find out.

I have also tryed to make a new stair whith same measure.

And I do not delete anything but after measures i click in cutstrings and then posts.

Wen I click in handrails some of cutstings dissapear.

I have tryed several times.

So I wonder…. is it some problem with my softwear???

I bought it in july 2016 with reduced price.

Is it update??

It can not be so difficult.

Hi Hasse

I downloaded your file and all I had to do is change one of the two posts to handrail and the connection is ok . I can not give a clear explanation on how this is working right now. I wil come back with a more detailed explanation on this. try it from your side now and you will see it connects immediately. Let me know if it works at your side

Hi Hasse 

in the tab view on top of the screen you can choose display handrails. 

I wonder if you opened the file I send you or are you still working of your original one ? Can you tell me which changes you did ?

Again I see a much too high newel above the handrail in the settings. Newel 5 reference axis is on automatic and newel 6 on handrail. Change newel 5 to handrail and it will connect correctly . Then change the top height of the newels to correct them.

I wonder were these high values of top height are coming from. Did you set them ?

Hi Hasse 

somehow you made some changes that created this . Some cutstringers were deleted. When I added back the cutstring it was all connected again.

You can change the newel size in the properties . Select the newel and in the properties go to “Section”. You can choose between ¬†square, rectangular or circular. Also the height can be corrected in the section top and base height

here is the result

Hi again

well it seems to not fit.

I have problems with newel post 5 and 6 or it is problem with the inner handrails.

It iooks like handrails are shorter beacuse the newel posts no 5,6 are smaler than 1,2.

Can it be like that?

Cant I have difrent size of posts?

Post nr 1,2,7,8 are 80×80 mm rest is 60×60.

I have try to change on newel references tohandrail and to automatic but its not helping me.

I hav also manual take the topp hihger then 50 mm over handrail, but probebly that is beacuse they not conecting.

If you can show me like Ness did erlier with links in this topic.

Thank you in advance

Hi Hasse

in the properties of the newels I changed the references axis to handrail. This is centering the newels on the handrail and then it is all connected . See attached

Can you say why inner curve with handrails and  posts are not together?

And also why posts are not high enough even it says they are 50 mm over handrails.

Hi Hasse,

If you are in StairDesigner 6 use the “position / ref.point:

sd6-post-setback.pngImage Enlarger

in StairDesigner 7, in the plan view, right click and choose “add newel post”.

When asked to “click position where to add”, click the string where you want the post:

sd7-add-post.pngImage Enlarger

StairDesigner will add the post and you can set it’s parameters.

sd7-add-post-020.pngImage Enlarger

In the 3D view delete the extra hand rail and stings:

3d-delete010.pngImage Enlarger

3d-delete020.pngImage Enlarger

The post position can now be adjusted using the “position” parameter:

3D-position.pngImage Enlarger

Hope this is helpful,

All the best,

Ness
