Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Basic stairs, part of Up and Running with Vectorworks.
…After entering all our other building parameters and…structures, the last thing is our stair.…We're going to create a basic staircase to go from floor one to floor two.…Of course first,…we need to remove the area the stair will pass through in finish floor two.…I'm going to set scan two to visible, make sure finish floor two and…floor two are visible.…And finish Floor two as my active layer.…I'm also going to edit the layer and set the opacity to 25%.…
Click OK and zoom in here to the opening.…I'll use the 2D Polygon Tool to trace the opening.…Making sure to use the Zoom Snap loop to get the proper end points.…Now that my polygon is created,…I'm going to go to Layer Options > Active Only.…And I can see that now I have just the slab and the polygon for my opening.…If I look at these from a Right view,…I can see that the opening is well below the slab.…As the elevation for finished floor two is still set at zero.…
I'm going to go to my Modeling tab > Extrude,…I'm going to extrude the polygon 18 feet.…So that I'm sure that it passes through the finished floor two slab.…
