Hi Oliver,

Thanks for posting this.

However, I'm guessing that you need to design spiral stairs with a circular central post and I don't think either version of StairDesigner very adapted to draw spiral stairs.

V6 has very limited spiral stair functions but it is possible to draw spiral stairs with a square or faceted post.

I don't recommend using and StairDesigner 7 doesn't have any spiral stair functions yet. We are hoping to get some up this year but for the time being I would design these stairs directly using CADD.

All the best,

Ness

Hi. Stefan suggested that I post a description and sketch-up 2D graphics of my stair plans before starting so as to be directed to version 6 or version 7. The 

Spiral stairs – 3 flights - lower ground to 2F.
Spiral diameter 1900;
Floor-to-floor height:
LG-UG 2920;
UG-1F 3000;
1F-2F 3050;
Total 8970.

Flight start/stop degree:
LG 270/180 (1st step start variable to fit fixed stop at 180 degrees);
UG 0/0-120 (1st step fixed at 0 degrees; stop variable at 0-120);
1F 120/180 (1st step variable at 90-180 to fit fixed stop at 180-210).

I hope above makes sense. I attach images showing landing coloured pink and stairwell yellow. 

Is version 6 or 7 more suitable? Any other advice, including how to avoid intersecting stringer error when completing full rotation.

thanks, Oliver
