Ramp Vignette--Testing Monday

Postby lesliediane » Fri Nov 24, 2017 10:43 am

Please review my vignette. A couple questions:

Is there any real rhyme or reason to where to place the wall and door? I know that the railings can't encroach on the door clearance, but can the turning circle overlap? I've seen some people place it way back and some put it pretty close to the landing, but I have seen no comments on it. Any thoughts?

I DON'T need a turning circle at 90 degree turns right? So those ramps only have to be 60x60 and the railings can overlap this 60", right?

Also, does it matter which direction I draw the ramps in? Or does the software figure out their slope direction based on the landing elevations? Same question for the stair (and stairs in the Stair Vignette).

Where it makes sense. No reason to crowd solution.

Turning circles not required in this solution. When required, they must be clear.

Correct.

Looks good.
