U-Spiral Stairs
« on: January 11, 2016, 04:33:06 PM »
I couldn't make U-Spiral stairs. But I connected 2 straight stairs to one spiral stairs. And I added railing with some details. This is not my first model, I want to share with you my other model images...  :)

Looks good, onur!! Want to share some more details about your workflow?

U said at the start "I couldn't make U-spiral stairs", what was the issue you were having there?

Bottom of Stairs


U Stairs in 3ds Max



I couldn't make U-Spiral Stairs instantly, because it isn't in 3ds Max. It has u stairs or straight stairs. You can see difference at images.

First, I make 2 straight stairs. and I make spiral stairs. And I connected them. v1's height is 260units, v2's height is 270units. Every stair is 16,875units. And there is 16 stairs. I used normal (bump) map in white areas. You can see it in bottom image.

Shawn Olson said I can't reply your messages couple days. Is he fine?

Are you sure. Seems like there is a U Stairs. I'll investigate tomorrow.

I'm OK. Except my back hurts! Spent 13 hours driving home from a normally-5-hour-trip. Bad weather plus bad road plowing plus bad drivers turned 1-70 in Pennsylvania into the longest road in America. On the plus side, I can report that my youngest son is just as adept as the next child in wondering when we will be there yet.

I had first read the post on my phone while traveling and didn't fully comprehend what your dilemma initially was. Now I understand.

You already have a solution manually, which is good.

I don't have an exact automatic solution at this moment that works perfectly, but you can build spiral U-steps with CorVex in Wall Mode and using Increment:Step. And I would assume you could build some with RailClone fairly easily. Being able to do this with CorVex takes some practice, and it doesn't account for the railings. If I was tasked with this kind of chore and needed to be able to change/update easily, I'd probably tackle it with RailClone.
