AECOsim Building Designer SS6. Version - 08.11.09.829
The total height of the stair shown below is 5000mm from ground level to the topmost landing. It has a short straight run (roughly 1000mm height) with a landing and continues a half turn with three landings to the top.
Can anyone please send me a very quick video demonstration on how i can model all the flight of this steel stairs in one sweep or in parts. Please no handrails, columns, beams or braces....just the stair carcass is enough.
I would really much appreciate your help on this one
I don't think this can be achieved in one go, we need to break the entire stair model into three parts, a quarter turn stair, a half turn stair and the landing between them can be modelled separately.
Can you provide the height of each of the landings?
A slight correction please, the total stair height is actually 5800mm and each riser is 200mm high across. From the natural ground level, first landing height is 1000mm, second landing height is 2600mm, Third landing height is 4200mm and Final landing height is 5800mm. Datagroup stair type is "S-G23-StairsSteelOpen+EdgeStringers"
IF you construct the stairs in three parts, is it possible to merge the "stringers" so they appear continous.
i would really appreciate a very short video if you don't mind as this would really help me
i look forward to hearing from you
thanks for your help
Can you model a landing on its own? if so, how do you merge it with a new or existing stairs?
The best I could come up with is to place multiple stairs as mentioned, and then for that one landing place an appropriate stair which you would then drop, delete the stair components leaving just the landing geometry. You could re-group that as well. Once positioned you should have something similar to what you've shown. Of course, for reporting purposes they will be identified separately.
Thanks for the tip and this is exactly how i have been constructing the stair so far. i will send you a snapshot of the stair model once its completed.
Meanwhile, i can seem to find a suitable profile/section (these are bolted 5mm thin bars) for the X bracing highlighted in the image below. Do you have any other ideas how i can model these bracing with AECOsim tools. Actually, i can model them generically as smart solids but i want to avoid this as need to be able to report on them in the datagroup explorer. Also, is it possible to add a custom section or profile?
