Building Curved Stairs in Sketchup


I have a fairly complicated curved stairs to build. Is the best option to: build them complete and straight and then use either Flowify or Shape Builder to bend them to the existing wall diameter.

It depends on how accurate you want them
My stairmaker can do this and more

Of course you meant Shape Bender? I think that second option is better.
Although due to the fact that SU does not support real curves, it is sometimes better to make such stairs “by hand”. Especially when it is to serve not only visualization but also for drawing documentation.

Hi Garry

Thanks for the reply. Can you build your stairs from a floor plan See attached.

I tried making by hand so far could not figure out how to make the inside cut stringer and the outside housed stringer. Any suggestions would be appreciated
