Stair Tool - Pain Points

Recommended Posts

I'm new to the stair tool. I've been trying to use it in landmark for external steps.

If the tool can only offer basic functionality in terms of two elevations and calculating riser heights and tread depths, please can you add a feature that allows you to calculate a fall across each tread. 

If it could be all singing and dancing, it would be great if you could specify tread make up a bit like a slab, and risers as a wall, so you can put a section through and get the construction...

Stairs should allow you to pick from all designated levels, not just "[Story Above]"

Could be separate Selections

Top Bound:

  1. Select Story:
  2. Select Level:
  3. Top Offset:

On mult-level or split level structures, "Story Above" can be quite limiting.

Here is a link to 3rd party stair parts using Vectorworks to create.


Being a residential home designer/estimator, these parts are just what the doctor ordered.


We should already have these.


Current limitations of what is given us for options is conceptual at best.

Should have Custom Tab for adding or selecting railing profiles.
