  1. Fair points. I also think curved stairs would be a bigger priority than the step fall, and also the railing fixes. In the end its still faster to have the stair tool than not si I can't complain too much ūüôā
  2. Thanks for the input everyone! It is the default outdoor stair option, so its not about enhancing the project but rather doing what is necessary to meet code. The changes are slight but important given small tolerances for drainage fall on stairs in the first place. I can't send drawings without this drainage slope applied, and it means adjusting the annotations made from any stair drawings. This basically means I cant use the stair tool if I need to send out detail drawings on them. Don't always have to, but often enough that it is a pain point. Similarly, with the freestanding handrails, the only automatically generated options basically would never be built (a post on every stair??? or posts set at the edge of a slab/step???) -Poot
  3. Hi Everyone, I'm just learning the ropes with VW, and have started using the stair tool which is great, but somewhat limited. I have two main issues some of you might have experience with: For outdoor stairs in Norway, we usually draw them with a 1cm fall on each tread for drainage (important in cold countries where stairs ice up). Is there a way to incorporate this into the stair tool, or would I have to make a 2d section and extrude that? This means the rise would be 14+1(slope) for each step up, for example. With the stair tool railings options, I can't seem to place the posts with larger distances in the middle of their respective treads (the option for a post on every tread to the left does place them in the middle) Am I missing something, or is the solution to extrude tubes along a path to the right height and move those into place under the railing? Thanks in advance for any tips!

    IFC display problem

    Importing the IFC file as a reference worked, and seems like a good solution unless you'd need to pick or use any of the IFC elements (not really needed in my workflow). I will fool around with importing the IFC into a blank VW file and importing that (not as a reference) to see if that also works in the case more control over specific elements is needed. Thanks for the tip!
  5. I have tried this, but since I used an elevated slab modifier (to creat a cutout for an existing building in the DTM) the contours placed vertically on top of each other cause problems when remaking a new site model from copied contours.
  6. Hello everyone, I'm running Landmark 2021, and have a problem where importing an IFC model of 2 buildings into my drawing with a 3d site model. Problem: When viewing in 3D, the IFC model is only showing in wireframe, regardless of the display settings for OpenGL. I currently have the default OpenGL rough sketch settings, and the same IFC works fine imported within a blank document. I have both the internal & local origin points within 200m (~650ft), and have tried restarting and basic problem solving steps, as well as changing some of the OpenGL options. The images show the same IFC in an empty, vs the working file using the same settings. Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated!
