Flow along crv alternative


I am making a curvy staircase and need some advice of how to allocate an array of rectangles to a helix curve. I used ‘Flow along curve’ and it almost did it except the rectangles (would be treads ) were not properly aligned and tilt at odd angles.

Any advice of how I may go about this is greatly appreciated thank you!

You can make a surface from the curve to guid the rectangle.
Then use the tool : ArrayCrvOnSrf


Thanks for the help!


How about setting the array to Roadlike, choosing the topview Cplane as reference:

Hello - see if the attached python helps - I think it does what you are asking.

ArrayCrvFlat.py (2.0 KB)

To use the Python script use RunPythonScript, or a macro:

_-RunPythonScript "Full path to py file inside double-quotes"


This worked great! Thank you!

Would I have to know how to code in order to use python?

Just make sure ‘roadlike’ it making your steps level - I do not think it will.
