    I have spent a considerable amount of time trying to construct a 3′ diameter spiral stair. I cannot fine a way to set the diameter to less than the 7′ (or so) that seems to be a minimum. I know that
    the stair tool is a very complex tool; is there an order of input that will allow for the adjustment of the stair diameter?

      Earl –
      Let’s queue this up for the next coaching call.
      I’ll be happy to take a look at it at that time.
      By the way, are you using a stair object or designing this in Stairmaker? If you’re using a stair object, please let me know which one it is so I can experiment with it before the call.
