Introduction

There are two approaches to creating Stairs in Revit. These are the Stair by Component method and the older Stair by Sketch method. Creating Stairs in Revit can combine both methods depending on your requirements.

The Component Stair is parametric, but sometimes less flexible. Stair by Sketch method is useful when creating custom shaped stairs.

Component Stairs are available in five different runs and three types.

Stairs by Sketch runs and platforms are made by using Draw tools in three methods, and two types.
