Stairs
« on: November 30, 2017, 07:25:18 PM »
hello, when i make a stair with the vertical deformation on a helix the opposite side to the spline is no flat, i think because the projection of the geometry is no evenly on this side.
in the ready file of the tutorial this get solved with a edit spline. then the segments are perfect distributed all along the stair on both sides.
but when i apply a edit spline over the helix nothing change. Can someone tell me how to fix it?

Thanks

Hi,

Thanks for your message. The issue is that Max's helix spline has its segments set to spline. The solution therefore is to add an Edit Spline modifier, select all the segments, right-click and change them to curves.

I hope that helps.

Best,

Paul

Hi,

thanks a lot for the answer! The solution was like u said, but not selecting all the segments but selecting the whole spline, then right click and change to curve, now is working fine!

Thanks again and best regards!!
