Help with stairs/quarter-turn/landing

Recommended Posts

I'm working on recreating an existing plan for a project that's currently under construction. Using HD Arch 2019, but mainly as a tool to help client with interior design. I am new to the software and have been drafting this project bit by bit since June.

The project's (built as a story and a half in HD Arch) staircase (see A4 attachment for visual) calls for a straight staircase, a landing midway up the wall, and then a quarter turn to the left to reach the upper level. I used the build U-shaped stairs tool, and then rotated a section to create a draft staircase, but I'm unable to snap it to the wall as the plan calls for. Looking for any advice on how to get the correct layout is greatly appreciated.

Please post images (.png, .jpg etc) directly as they show in the forum and do not require a separate download to view -- no need to make a PDF of an image.

 

I see you said HD Arch 2019, but ...

 

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see mine for an example) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

What are you wanting to snap to what wall?

 

Attaching the plan file (close the program first) lets others make the best suggestions.

Thanks for the reply. I've edited my post to include the plan (work in progress - lots of stuff is incorrect compared to the actual plan SS) and removed the downloads.

Re: snap - The staircase is supposed to be flush to a wall. I've made the staircase, but I'm unable to move it so that it's flush to said wall.

If this is what you want, then select the stair sections and landing and move them over. You may need to hold the Control key (free move) to drag it into place.

Thank you, Solver! I can't believe I didn't know to click in the middle section with control pressed. Worked like a charm, and I was able to finally get the upstairs landing connected as well. Not 100% correct but it will do for now.
