Imagine the process of creating a stair in your project. It involves making treads, handrails, stringers, landings, bolts and much other fine detail. If you're fast, this will take you around 45 minutes. If you've never done it, you'll need to look up the Australian standard and make sure that your efforts comply.

Now imagine, picking the top and bottom point, filling out a dialog box and clicking go. 30 seconds* later your stair is done.

This stair has the following properties:
  • Meets the current Australian standards
  • Custom treads with custom treatments
  • Landings, top, bottom or both
  • Concrete or Steel connections
  • Handrail is optional
  • Custom width and nosing
  • If you have stringers in place, you can use those to place the treads
  • To make your life easier the treads are modeled as one member and are named as per the Webforge naming convention

* Actually we're kidding with the 30 seconds. On a 2.67GHz notebook, it takes less than 10 seconds.
