LX-Stair

Andreas Luka Consulting
The Land[x] stair plug-in provides tools for creating and editing simple solid staircases in Autodesk® Civil 3D® based on parameters for height of riser, length of tread, width, landing and slope.

General Usage Instructions

During startup the plug-in checks the existence of a LXStair property set and creates this definition if missing. 

After launching, the LXStairSolidAdd command use this dialog box to specify stair settings (name, layer) and parameters (riser, tread, landing, width and slope) and draws the staircase by specifying the start point and direction.

Existing staircases can be edited with the LXStairSolidModify command. Use the dialog box to adjust settings, parameters and geometry (position, rotation). The stair will be updated after you click the OK button. The stair can be also selected first and a right mouse click "Modify stair"also opens the dialog.

You can see a list of all stairs and their parameters by launching the LXStairList command.

The plug-in only checks the existence of the LXStair property set definition, but not its validity. Removing properties from the definition can lead to malfunction.
