Stringer too long


Hi there !

I'm completely new here and this is my first Posting. I'm an architect from germany and I will start a new Job in a new firm using AC25 on Nov. 1st. Actually it is a Real Estate firm and I will be the first architect there, so  there is nobody yet to ask. Now and during the past week I've been practising with the 30-Day-Trial version and, as you can imagine, I encountered hundreds of questionmarks. The documentation and help [F1] isn't that much of a help. (you should see what Revit provides when you hit F1 !!). so I hope that I can find some help here even on dumb questions and you'll be patient with me 😄

 here's my first question: How do I manage, that the stringer ends with the most upper step and doesn't continues into the ceiling/floor ..

Hi Toshi, it seems that you have the top connection not configured as you need. Try changing the Support Connections. You can access it under the Structure > Flight - Stringers > Support Connections. On this tab, you will find an image of a stair. Click on the area where you want to set up correctly. It will be highlighted in blue, then change the Flight-End to the best fit for your design.


Let me know if this is what you were looking for.
