Do Not Use it!Whatever you do, do not be tempted to use this new feature - it is a really bad idea.
- In-place stairs do not host railings.
- You cannot use any of the stair features like stair numbers or arrows
- You cannot mix and match in-place with component stairs
- You can create unusual shaped stairs using the component sketch tool
- It was much faster for me to model the staircase shown above using the component sketch tools than it was to model it in-place by creating forms and cutting with voids.
- In-place families are a (necessary) evil in Revit - but they cause so many problems. They should only be used as a last resort when absolutely nothing else will do the task.
- If you move or copy an in-place stair, it does not move the elements (including forms) within it - so you have to edit the family to repeat the move process
- In-place families included within groups just make duplicates of the family - they don't necessarily move when the copies of the group move; they don't update in the duplicates if you update one
- The list could go on . . . .
