Triple L stair without landings

Recommended Posts


I would like to create a Triple L stair but without landing and instead winders. Can I do this with the standard configuration. Or how can I manipulate this.

Or do I create two seperate L-Stair winder stairs to achieve this outcome?

I'm quite certain this can be done in a straight forward fashion using the legacy Custom Stair Tool.  If you don't have access to it you can edit your Workspace and move it into a tool palette.   This is the only stair tool we use having never found its replacement very useful.

Thank you for your help, it seems impossible to make it work. I drew in the end two stairs and it works.

Something like this is what I'm picturing you are trying to make.  This is one Custom Stair Object with 4 winders and 5 straight runs.   If I need a configuration that I can't make in a single object I will stack two stairs and just offset the top of the bottom run and the bottom of the top run and piece the two together.   This can happen with some landing configurations or if the tread width changes in a way the plug-in can't handle.

Thank you, that is what I have done, put two pieces of stair together. 

In the end, I have found another solution, an U-winder solution which works much better. It is a complex scenario, client wants a toilet below the stair, plus space in a hall for a door and the upper floor opening is restricted due to heritage.

Thank you for your help and suggestion.
