Hi Scott,

StairDesigner will not automatically output the tangent templates.

But you can use the StairDesigner DXF output to draw the templates.

Here’s an article and video on how to do this:


We also have an ebook that explains how to draw these templates in CAD.

You can download it for free from our eBook library here:


Hope this is helpful,


Scott Horan

I have been studying how to lay out tangent handrails. Does Stairdesigner make the patterns and where would I go to learn how to do it?
