Marius Oberholster Hey! I'm having an incredible learning experience, not only learning how Blender works (yes, still learning), but also about Open-Source and the incredible software available. Stick around!

Oh look, stairs!

Hey everyone!

A bit of a late post, but something cool! Recently I receive the theory that you can make a spiral staircase from a single step, a cylinder and few modifiers. The great thing is, you can!


Obviously, this does not include the railing, but, you can add it. I've tried to add one, but this was the best I got in the time I played around with this:

Needs some adjustment, no, lol.

Anyway, how you do it is super simple:
 - You model a step (flat plane, otherwise it will distort later)
 - You add the array modifier, set it to a constant offset and to the number of steps you would like
 - Add the simple deform modifier to rotate the staircase in the way you want it to go
 - Add a Solidifier modifier to give your steps some thickness, like in the first.

Have fun with it and let me know if you know any cool modeling tricks like this!

Have a great one!

Thank YOU!!!!!!

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen."
