Winding stair with no top tread

Question

Hi. I'm modelling an existing building with a stair that winds at the top of the flight and has no 'straight' top tread. See attached image. I cannot seem to get Vectorworks (VW2020) to model this stair without having a single 'straight' tread at the top of the winder. Does anyone know of a work around for this? Thanks, Matt.

We had the same problem and very upset that such restriction applies onto us in this design tool.

You can use the Custom Stair tool instead (I’m not sure if this tool is available in the international versions around the world though)

Thanks for the tip. I've just added the "custom stair tool" and have been using this to work around the problem. Wow, a blast from the past, as I had forgotten about this tool. I did notice however that the custom stair tool seems a little "buggy" in VW2020 as it does not render some of the treads as solid objects in 3D. 

 

I hope the standard stair tool gets updated to reflect this simple change.

 

Many thanks,

Matt
