REVIT STAIRS DEFINITIONS

BASE AND TOP LEVELS: Stairs are based on selected levels that already exist in the project. You can add an offset on these levels if required.

DESIRED STAIR HEIGHT: Total distance between the base and the top of the stairs, including offsets.

DESIRED NUMBER OF RISERS: Automatically calculated by Revit, dividing Stair Height by Maximum Riser Height.

ACTUAL NUMBER OF RISERS: The number of risers you modeled so far.

MAXIMUM RISER HEIGHT: Riser height for your stair will never go above this value.

ACTUAL RISER HEIGHT: This distance is automatically calculated by Revit, dividing the Stair Height by the Desired Number of Risers.

MINIMUM TREAD DEPTH:  specify the minimum tread depth & we can go above this number, but not below.

ACTUAL TREAD DEPTH: By default, this value is equal to minimum tread depth set in the stair type.

MINIMUM RUN WIDTH: Set on the stair type, you can specify the minimum run width.

ACTUAL RUN WIDTH: By default, this will be the same as the minimum run width.

Difference between Architecture Floor & Structure Floor

Structural slab is generally used to model the slabs  where as the architecture floors are used to model the floor finishes .

The difference of both the floors is in the properties, the structural floor is having extra structure properties, whereas architectural floors have the basic architecture properties.
