    Default How to Draw a spiral stair that goes around a round elevator similar to Apple store

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I am trying figure out the best way to draw a spiral staircase with floating metal treads that encircles a round glass elevator shaft in autocad 2009. The first section is 13' 1/8" high, outer part is 11 round inner part is 8' round with a 4 opening at elevator doorway, second section 18' high same inner and outer dimensions and opening. This would be very similar to the Apple NYC store stairs and elevator Ive attached a pic. Any step by step suggestions would be most appreciated. Thank you!!!!

    The best way to design a spiral stair is to start off drawing the plan view of the spiral stair.
    From there you can then develop a single tread and convert it to a block, then project the treads around using a polar array.

    The glass balustrade and be made using a combination of helix' and sweeps.

    I don't know, might be a few hundred years before your time.

    What I have given you is just a quick example of the tools I would use.
    Obviously to give you a step by step detail would take quite a long time. But if you are struggling at some points you should repost here so that I can get mail alerts, that way i can post screen shots and examples that would help you.

    Did you get that spiral staircase & lift drawn up? I'd love to see it! I'm thinking of the same thing for my building.

    Could you upload the CAD drawing?
