Historic stair amendments


I have to model a few stairs where every going is different in depth and size. Sofar I modeled the stair as closely as possible and then used the edit mode in plan to move and change the size of the goings and moved the risers too.

So far so good. Looks great in 3d.


But the blue line in 3d is still following the original design and I can't amend it. So my stringer is also wrong 


The blue line on the top floor is also a bit too long and i cant reduce it.


Any advise?

If it is so non-standard, I would probably model the whole stair with beams and slabs.

But if you ar happy with the treads and risers, maybe just turn the stringers off and place some beams.
