  Stairs in AutoCAD Architecture:From the Ground Up Bill Glennie – Autodesk AEC Solutions AB314-3 Learn all you need to know about stairs and railings in AutoCAD Architecture. Never again willyou settle for simple linework in a floor plan. After attending this class, you'll be able to drawStair and Railing objects that are displayed properly in Plan, Isometric, and Elevation views.We’ll also cover tips and tricks for using the full power of the Stair and Railing objects,including the use of Custom Stairs for creating elaborate shapes. About the Speaker: Bill is user “number one” of AutoCAD Architecture (formerly Autodesk Architectural Desktop) software.He joined Autodesk as a QA analyst in 1997, a year before the release of Desktop Version 1. SinceVersion 3, Bill has led the design of the Stair and Railing features, and is now QA manager for theAutoCAD Architecture team. Prior to Autodesk, Bill taught CAD courses for 14 years at the University of Pennsylvania and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He also worked for a small architecture and solar consulting firm as a programmer and design analyst after receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree inArchitecture and a Master of Science in Education (Civil Engineering) degree from Princeton University.bill.glennie@autodesk.com   Stairs in AutoCAD Architecture: From the Ground UpFundamental Limitations of the ADT Stair object (from AU 2005 presentation)1.Riser heights are equal for every stepException - Bottom Offset can be used to make stringer extend below floor level2.“Design Development” level of detail only (e.g. square nosing & rectangular stringers)3.Tread depths are constant – along the construction lineCan adjust position across Multi-landing stairs4.First and last tread edge must be perpendicular to construction line5.Tread edges between sides of stair must be straight6.Risers extend full width of stair 7.Stringers extend full length of stair 8.Stringers must follow or are offset from stair edgesPage 3 of 22  Not any more! Seven of these eight limitations have been overcome with recent releases of AutoCADArchitecture. The exception is:Riser heights must still be equal for every step.Stairs can now be much more realistic and varied.1.Nosing & Stringers can be customized usingBody Modifiers(01 - Stringer&RiserCustomized.dwg)2.Tread depths no longer need to beconstant – Custom Stairs allow thecreation of any length of tread3.First and last tread edge must notnecessarily be perpendicular toconstruction line4.Tread edges between sides of stair maybe almost any shape5.Risers can extend across anyportion of stair – as long as itincludes the Stair Path6.Stringers can be made longer or shorter than the default length using BodyModifiers(02 - TreadEdge&RiserCustomized.dwg)7.Stringers can follow paths that areindependent of stair edges –ReplaceStringerPath(03-StandardToCustom-Saddled.dwg)Page 4 of 22
