Hi Everyone,

I am trying to make  a 1/8 inch stair stringer so I can make a 3D staircase. Does anyone know where i can find such a svg? I have been unsuccessful at creating my own :( thanks Angie

    @minicurios - we have Popup Card Studio (PCS) that does that for you. Do you have PCS? We also have a resident expert - Susan Bluerobot - who has a whole blog dedicated to PCS with instructions, pictures and how to videos.

    How many stairs are you trying to cram into 1/8 inches?

    is this what you mean by a stair stringer

    There a few ways but this is how I would do it

    Begin with diamond from basic shapes

    Duplicate by10 (0"spacing) , Then with all selected weld

    Use node edit tool to remove unwanted lines

    Use pencil tool to draw line from node at A to C  (hold ctrl to snap to nodes)

    I Use Zing Air, Make The Cut - Pop Card Studio, WinXP- Win7 -Win10
