Will do Michael.  It’s a lot.  I have quite a few pictures and will write up the whole adventure.  It’ll take some time, but that fits right in with the speed of the whole project.  Tsk tsk.

Hi Scott,

 

That would be great!

 

I am sending you an email that you can use to add all information. If you agree, we would like to create a testimonial or article on our website covering the journey. It would be very appreciated if you send us this and eventually grant us access to pictures on a shared location or send them via wetransfer to us. 

 

Thanks a lot 

Michel

Wow, it’s been months since I got the files, but I finally did build the stairway.  I’ll post the whole thing here a bit at a time, since I want to be thorough and time is always a problem.  I won’t go into why everything took so long.  I’m not really that sure anyway.  It just did.  Besides, it’s not yet completed.  You’ll understand as the story unfolds.

I turned the files over to my friend, who created two things.  First, a full set of full sized templates, printed up on a vinyl cutter using a pen instead of the blade.  Second, he 3D printed a small set of parts which allowed me to lay out the cutting of the parts using the least materials.

In the next post, I will talk about materials.

That would be cool.  I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures.  I’ll look for beech when buying the wood.

Thanks,

Scott

Hi Scott,

 

We have some materials created in our library that can be used when adding elements like walls or floors. We name these that way so that you can recognise them on the cutlist and ignore them in production. Stairdesigner has not been built for this yet but using an intermediate newel post and resizing it can be applied as such an element to enhance your 3D.

About the choice of wood, it depends on what you can get locally. It is difficult for me to say. Beech is a common wood type for stairs. Harder than pine which is a softwood.

 

Don’t forget to provide us with pictures of the build and if possible some written experience. If you agree we could create an article on it and post it on our website.

 

regards

I want to take this opportunity to say how cool this looks and that I appreciate all the effort that has gone into this.

Thanks!

It’s going to be a great stairway.

Z_wall_white…

is called out as the material.  What does this mean?  And what type of materials should be used for this project?  My initial thought was pine, but many of these pieces would be hard to source in large enough dimensions in pine.  What is suggested?
