Roland,

Send me your user ID and I will extend your trial.

This is a progressive flare - where the treads at the center get progressively larger.

Just wanted to register my satisfaction with this plugin. I bought it to help me generate a set of half-spiral stairs for a client project.

The plugin itself is well-done and works flawlessly. But what really impressed me is how well Garry K supports it. He has been tremendously helpful in showing me how to generate output from it that it was not specifically designed to do. (in this case a single central steel stringer)

And with every query —and there were several in my case!— his replies were prompt and on-point. Really a pleasure to deal with.

Highly recommended to anyone who needs to resolve a spiral stair conundrum.

Hi everybody :

I tried running Stair Maker, Version 1.0.23, and I noticed that it didn't have the OKAY button. Suggestions ?

Stair Maker's current version is 1.0.32
Are you sure you installed 1.0.23

What does it say at the top of the form?

Hi Gary -

I'm wondering if you're planning on adding L and U-shaped stair options to this plugin? It would seem a relatively easy thing, especially compared to what you've already created for spiral stairs.

I've been following your progress on Cabinet Maker, so I realize that you've likely not had a lot of time to devote lately to Stair Maker. It would be great if I could (eventually) use it for all the stairs I model — the majority of which are either U-shaped or L-shaped.

Any word for future development for this one?

Doug - I do have plans to get back into StairMaker.

L shaped and U shaped stairs are part of my plans (using simple landings). There will probably be additional parameters. I'm also thinking about including a notching point for either side of the stair. Example the top of the stair is between 2 walls and the stair widens after the notching point, possibly changing from housed to sawtooth after the notch.

Another idea that I have is to create elliptical stairs. There are essentially 2 types where the stair starts either at the minor or major axis. These stairs can be made comfortable without having a change of pitch. They can also be made with a continuous change of pitch (bigger challenge - more costly)

Error 101 means the internet connection time out on your computer. Stairmaker needs to connect to my web service once every week.
