Description

In this set of tutorials, you'll learn how to draw a stair detail in AutoCAD. We'll begin the project by using Polylines to draw the basic form of the treads. Once we have the form in place we'll then draw the stringers and landing. We'll finish out the drawing by adding some handrails and balusters as well as text and dimensions. While working with our drawing we'll be sure to adhere to the code requirements which can be found in the International Building Code. By the end of this training, you'll have a solid understanding of what it takes to draw a professional looking and code compliant stair detail for your permit set of drawings. Software required: AutoCAD.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi there. I'm Pierre with Digital-Tutors, an Autodesk authorized publisher. In this set of tutorials you'll learn how to draw a stair detail using AutoCAD. We will begin the project by using polylines to draw the basic form of the treads. Once we have the basic form in place we'll then draw some stringers, as well as the landing. We'll finish out our drawing by adding some handrails and balusters, as well as some text and dimensions, and while working with our drawing we will be sure to add here to the code requirements, which can be found in the international building code. By the end of this course you'll have a solid understanding of what it takes to draw a professional looking, code compliant stair detail for your permit set of drawings, so with that I'm ready to get started, and I'll see you in the next lesson.
