    Are you talking 2D or 3D?
    Do you have a picture of the type of stairs you are trying to create that you could post?

    I did a search of the forum for stairs and here are the results: http://www.cadtutor.net/forum/search...earchid=104185. Read through some of those threads and see if you get any questions answered.

    Edit: Hmmmmm, the link doesn't seem to be working anymore, but you can do your own search. Just type Stair into the search box and browse through the results. Thanks for bringing that to my attention Alan.

    how much detail were you hoping for? is it for a floorplan or to design the full 3D, spindles and all?

    Hi

    Is this the type of something you are after?

    Foot note

    Nothing to do with me, not my work just had a quick gander on the web.

    Its not hard to do spiral staircases in full 3D.

    You make 1 full tread in 3d with hand rail then copy vertically and rotate to correct angle.

    The one illustrated above would require a bit more programming than the seconds it takes me now to draw one.

    ah, now that depends on the level of design you're producing - if it's for retro-fitting stairs (eg for a loft conversion) your building regs will tell you how deep your runners and risers will be, and you'll have to divide your ceiling height plus the depth of the upstairs floor to find out how many stairs you need....

    if it's new build you'll probably have a formula already for the height you need the whole staircase to be, so producing blocks for stairs becomes much easier

    Hi Erika

    Follow the above link and it will lead you to Richard Burbidge they manufacture al sorts of timber products including stairs and supply CAD drawings for you to down load free of charge and that’s the reason for giving you the link Just like the one shown below.

    I hope this is of some.
