Trouble joining flights of stairs

202 Views, 2 Replies

I have the following flights of stairs running down one side of my building:

Landing, 6R with 170mm height, Landing, 3R with 190 height, Landing, 7R with 182 height.


I've modelled this as 3 separate flights of stairs because of the 3 different riser heights.  The top landing is a floor slab, as is the bottom landing.  I've modelled intermediate landings as either the top or bottom tread of a flight.  How do I deal with the junctions of these stairs? The monolithic concrete will not join.  The materials of both components are set to <By Category>.


I think I've gone about this the wrong way.  Please advise.


Thanks in advance.

If I can ask - why would you need to join the stairs?


Can you post some images of what you are working on?

This would probably help in understanding what you are wanting to achieve...


If this helped solve your issue - remember to 'accept as solution' to help other find answers!
You can't think AutoCAD and run Revit.

Hi Lisa


Looking at the stairs in section there is no structure at the junction of the two flights.


How do I make the concrete of one stair blend with that of the next?
