Since it’s quite cumbersome to create a helix curve with the right angle to create spiral staircase railings, I’d like to suggest a feature for this (assuming there isn’t already).
Thanks a lot!
I tried finding the thread where Pascal made the HelixByAngle script which saves a lot of effort. I’ve used it for production drawings of several helical steel staircases for both the stringers and handrails, and it works very well. However, I couldn’t find the thread? So here it is HelixByAngle.zip (569 Bytes) . All props to Pascal!
The only potential problem is that it was written for V5.
Thank you, MattE! Will come in handy!
@Eugen I add your vote for this feature. If you are using a stair style that has a slab, you can duplicate the edge of the slab with the DupEdge command (the edge is not highlighted in this process, by the way) and generate the railing from it.
I did use the vaStairClearanceContour command, which gives a nice degree 2 curve, and edited that one.
