If you want to build a customized staircase instead of using the automated stair tool in Revit Architecture, you can take a component-based approach. You create (or duplicate) each part of the staircase, including individual risers, and put them together to build the staircase step by step. This approach can be useful for more complex staircases, like those that curve or change direction. Learn how to work with component-based stairs in Revit Architecture 2015 in this online video.
…In this movie, we're going to look at the component based stair.…Revit has kinds of stairs, and in the previous movie, we looked at the sketch…based stair, and this time around, we're…going to look at the, component based stair.…Now in some ways, the component based stairs…is a little bit more robust than, the…sketched based stair, and so, I'd like to…focus on some of those differences between the two.…I'm in a file called, Component Stairs, and, one of…the, differences that we have between component and sketched based…stair is, a component based stair can be built in,…2D or 3D, or you can, work in both views simultaneously.…
So, let me demonstrate here.…I'm currently in a, floor plan level one.…But also in, this exercise file, I have a view here called, 3D stair section.…I'm going to double click and open that up.…Zoomed in a little too close there.…Let's zoom it out just so you can see.…And, this is a, cropped view of the, lobby…area that we were looking at in the plan view.…Now I'll talk about how I created this…

Q: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
