I have made a spiral staircase and I am trying to get it to wrap around a cylinder that gets narrower as it gets higher.

![enter image description here

I've tried to use the shrinkwrap tool but I am getting some really weird results.

Does anybody know of a good method to acheive this? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    $\begingroup$ I might use a lattice deform to shrink the top of the stairs, though that may not provide exactly the results you’re looking for. $\endgroup$

If you don't mind that the stairs lose a little width towards the top due to scaling, you can use the modifier Simple Deform for this.
