How to Create Multistory Stairs in Revit?

After we got several requests from our clients, on how to create multistory stairs in Autodesk Revit, we decided to write this post as a visual guide.

In older versions of Revit, the way to create multistory stairs had been very different, but since it changed, this is what we are about to explore in this post! Let’s get started!

Walk with me through the following steps:

  1. Click Architecture tabCirculation panelundefined (which is the stair icon in Revit), and go ahead and start creating the desired stair component. Note that the Multistory stairs panel is currently grayed out as shown in Figure 1 and that it has only one button; which is “Connected Levels”.
  1. The “Connected Levels” button would be active once you finish drawing your initial sketch for the stairs you need.
  2. Once it is active, go to elevation view and choose the level you need those multistory stairs to connect.

How to Export a Revit Model to SketchUp?

A lot of beginners struggle a little with this question, and since we wish you guys a great journey learning Autodesk Revit, and since we would love to be a part of your journey, we would love to leave this small guide with you, till we provide you with way more, soon!

So, to export your Revit Model to SketchUP with proper model faces, we need to export it first to a dwg/dxf format,

Walk with me through the following steps:

  1. If your Revit file has topography in it, enable the section box in 3D view, and crop out any part you don’t want.
  2.  From the file menu, go to Export > Options > Exports Setups dwg/dxf.
  3. Click on the solids tab, and select ACIS solids.

4. Hit OK, and return to the Export Menu > CAD formats > DWG.

Make sure you are in the 3D orthographic view when you export the model.

5. Import the model into SketchUp Pro. 

Note: you can’t import dwg files in SketchUp Make.
