I am evaluating Aecosim for my office and have hit a snag..
I can't find a way to create a curved stair....
ie; stair that follows a gently curving wall...
Question: Can Aecosim model a curved stair???
currently using OBD 10.10.01.151

The Stair Maker tool is an archaic MS tool which regurgitates a largely unusable ossified solid that isn't compatible with any AECOsim tools, its DataGroup folly or any of its automatic annotation features. Bentley have hidden this relic away I should add - its only accessible via the Keyin.
The only viable option then is the AECOsim stair tool...which cant do spiral stairs. The simple answer is no.

Be careful, questions like that will open Pandora's box! To avoid stoking a potentially explosive subject, I would suggest: 1. If you are mainly producing all of your information in 2D, and create 3D models primarily for visualisation and concept development, look no further than Microstation 2. If you are working on BIM projects from Level 1 or above and efficiency, relevance and competitiveness are high on your agenda (not forgetting the ability to create BIM-ready curved stairs) look no further than Revit or ArchiCad
