Create a run component by sketching the boundary and risers.
You can define custom runs by sketching boundaries and risers instead of having Revit LT calculate the stair run automatically. This method gives you more control when sketching the footprint of the stairs.
ImportantWhen you create components by sketching, they do not have the automatic relationship to each other as when stair components are created with the common component tools. For example, if you sketch run and landing components, then change the run width, the landing shape will not change automatically. Sketched components must be updated manually.
- Open a plan or 3D view.
- On the ribbon, click Architecture tabCirculation panel (Stairs).
- With Run selected on the Components panel, click (Create Sketch).
- Click Modify | Create Stair > Sketch Run tabDraw panel (Boundary).
Sketch the left and right boundaries using one of the drawing tools.
- Click Riser.
Sketch the risers using one of the drawing tools.
- Optionally, you can draw a custom stair path to indicate the walk line. Click (Stair Path), and sketch the path.
If you finish the run sketch without drawing a custom stair path, a stair path is created automatically.
NoteThe stair path sketch is used to generate the annotation stair path. If you would like to change the way the stair path is represented, you can edit the stair path sketch.
- Click (Finish Edit Mode) to exit sketch mode.
- To sketch a landing, see Creating a Landing Component by Sketching.
- Do not connect left and right boundary lines to each other. You can sketch them as single lines or multi-segmented lines (for example, straight lines and arcs connected).
- Connect riser lines between the left and right boundaries.
- If riser lines extend beyond the boundaries, they are trimmed when the run is created.
- The sketched stair path must start at the first riser line and end at the last riser line. It cannot extend beyond the first or last riser line.
