Hey gang,

 

Do you know how to make sure drywall is added throughout the stairwell once a hole has been cut? I edited the hole to add drywall but there is a strip missing.

 

Also, what is the best method for drawing stairs and cutting the ceiling and floor system out? I drew the stairs, then cut a hole in the floor system, then cut a hole in the ceiling. Then edited the hole to add drywall. Is there a better way?

 

Thanks!

I use 3D solids if I want it to look the best. The system cannot account well for the framing and filling the hole created by stairs most of the time. It is typically messy at best. Another option is to use a wall created with drywall only and uncheck cleanup and make sure it is not offset up on top of the floor, but sitting at 0'-0". The only problem with that is the join tolerances and clean up still seem to mess with those types of walls more often than not (even when settings are done the way they ought to be).

You have to put in the floor truss set before cutting the hole.  The drywall doesn't get added unless you have put in all of the details in the structural part of the drawings.

Even then, it doesn't work realistically. When would you have drywall at the head of the stair in the floor system? Then again, stairs don't frame realistically either. So many quirks it is often best left out of close view in renderings, unless you want to do work-arounds.
