Joining stairs and ramps to adjacent elements

Status: Gathering Support

Allow stairs and ramps to join with floors and walls, so elements read correct in views without having to manually hide lines.


When modelling stairs you want to model the element as it would be typically constructed i.e. with a stair tread continuing up to the floor surface. The result of this however is that when viewed in plan the stair looks like it has an additional riser where it meet the floor. With out elements typically this would be removed by joining the elements, however with stairs and ramps this is not possible to join.

As far as I know, you can join a stair (by component) with a floor. In a section this produces the correct representation of a notch connection. However, where the top of a notch is in fact part of the upper tread, in a floor plan the notch is withdrawn from the tread depth. It is one of the weird situations where Revit does not show what you would expect based on view properties and geometry. I would really like to see that changed!
