VW Architect stairs

Recommended Posts

Hi -

I can't quite figure out how the VW Architect stair tool works. I am able to enter all of the criteria for a stair (width, floor to floor height, etc.) but am having trouble actually placing the stair relative to other objects.

For example, when I create a double-back stair in 'top/plan' view then grab a corner of the landing and try to place it where two walls meet at a corner, it wants to snap to one of the walls and become associated with it. Often it will re-orient 90 degrees when doing this. Is there any way to keep stairs from snapping to walls?

Plese disable Symbol insertion tool/buton, it is on the left corner of the tool bar(two butons almost on the top). That buton is useful Off if you want to snap some other symbol oriented object, like cabinets/bath tubs etc. to the wall intersection/lines.
