StairSec.LSP automates the process of calculating and drawing stairway components in AutoCAD.

Draw Stair Sections automates the process of calculating and drawing stairway components in AutoCAD. The download includes the LISP code with an associated dialog box (DCL) and slide library (SLB) that should be located in the AutoCAD search path, as well as a text file (TXT) that explains how to use this marvelous productivity tool. Load the LISP code and type StairSec at the AutoCAD Command line to start. Thanks from everyone who draws stairs in their plans, Jay -- you just made life easier.

This is a great routine! I agree whole heartedly with the thanks to Jay. I see that the top point of the stair is directly above the top riser. Our firm draws the stair with the top point at the leading edge of the top nosing. Can someone help with the correct adjustment to the code to redefine that starting point and eliminate the corresponding first bit of horizontal line at the top?

Definitely a great routine, especially considering I've been drawing many stair sections recently. It was getting to the point I was going to write something along this vein. I may take a look at adding some additional detail such as stringers and handrail returns to this code. This will save hours of time!

Thanks for the comments. I have modified the routine to include: A Stringer Line Display Stringer & Sloped Riser options Added Handrail Extension Options Top & Bottom I suggest you replace the original tip with this new and improved one.
