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.

from above giving "Mark Petri" the credit....i also use the the 3d objects.  i have found that my new best option for drywall around stairs,  lattice around decks/surfaces similar to...or in general need a surface...try using the "3d plane"  You will have to work a little bit to get it in the right spot.  It follows the rules of offsetts like floors and such....my hint...make the plane bigger than you need and shrink it down as needed.  PM me if you want some help.  Bob.

I also use solids. I have one permanently defined as drywall A so I can colour match to the walls.

Typically you get a 1.5" gap in the drywall when going to the basement due to the interior basement walls being 1.5" (sill plate thickness) shorter than the bottom of the floor joists.  I solve this by lowering the sill plate 1.5" down and increasing the height of the basement walls by 1.5".
