This new online 'exclusive' chapter is based on a presentation I did last year (2017) in Europe on the new Revit feature, which earned the #4 speaker spot. This was at the BILT conference in Aarhus, Denmark. Here are a few conference-related posts:
- Your votes are in…BILT Europe Top 10 Speakers
- Reflecting on BILT-EUR 2017 in Aarhus Denmark
- BILT-EUR 2017 Top Ten Speakers
On a related note, I also had the opportunity to work with the developers on this new feature in 2016 via online sessions and during a week I spent with them in the Autodesk office in Shanghai China.

Notice the photo of a real stair condition to help describe what it is we are trying to achieve at this point.
Additional 'Advanced Concept' Material AvailableIn my Commercial Design Using Autodesk Revit book, the new Multi-Story Stair chapter is Appendix F; which is available online using a unique code provided with each book. Appendix D and E are briefly mentioned here as well to highlight some of the 'advanced concept' material I offer teachers and students when they use my books:
Appendix D: Using Performance Analysis in Revit and Insight 360 (44 pages)
Appendix E: Introduction to Lighting Analysis with ElumTools (42 pages)
Below are a few partial images from these chapters (click to enlarge):
Enscape Images of the MS StairAgain, just having fun clicking the Enscape Play button to create some high quality, and dramatic, still images of the multi-story stair. This blog post is not a printed document, so I can go a little overboard with the images because it is so easy and fun to do!
