Hi Alex,

I need the joint cuts to be vertical though. That’s why i cant check if the bottom section is parallel. 

Also if you look on the left stringer that little notch at the top sticking up needs removing.

Once manually modified, you leave the standard calculation which is done on an average. 

I would like to point out that the 270 mm width is not sufficient for your stair.

And adjust numbers of part and set to 300mm look to be better here

an Orthogonal Right view will be easier to control, in my opinion

Posting the same message twice only makes them less visible and slows down our processing time.

Regards, Alex

re posted this as i need a reply asap please. 

One other issue i have stumbled upon is when you have to modify the first stringer on a winder. The program does not make the vertical offset the measurement you choose. I understood from you that is because it tries to find the average over all the step noses. 

I have manually changed the top of the stringer to be 50mm from the nose of the step but i don’t know how to make the first step the same as there is no reference points to measure from. 


Also once the top of the stringer is modified now how can i check that it is parallel to the bottom of the stringer and at my desired width of 270mm?  

Once this  right stringer is complete the left stringer needs to be exactly the same width of 270mm and finish at the same points. how can I check this too?

Hope that makes sense.  File in question is attached.
