Tapered Stairs

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this has been answered in another forum post, but I couldn't find it if it was.

 

I'm looking for advice on how to use the stairs tool to create a stairs that tapers from one width to another width along its length (as the 2D image below). From what I can see the stairs tool only allows for a consistent stair width.

Thanks Wes. Its seems like it could be a simple thing to implement.

 

The best way to model this would be as a clipped extrusion I presume?

you could probably use the stair tool and subtract the taper og cut with the knife.

@James Corbett, I think I'd use the Stair tool initially to get the rise/run correct and then either "explode" it or just over-draw with extrusions as you've suggested...

Just tried it and the Trim (knife) tool works on a simple stairs but not on anything more complex. Its sorts out my problem, so thanks Hans-Olav!
