I'm quite new to Blender, I started using it for a project which requires me to 3D-model a theatre. Up until now, I've somewhat managed to do what I wanted thanks to online tutorials, but now I'm facing a problem for which I found no solution/tutorial/help on the internet. The problem is : how can I model a hemicyclic fly of rows (such as in antique amphitheaters) ? Something like this (I don't own this pic) :
I've tried to model a single row, make it follow a curve/path, and then use an array modifier to reproduce it, but the result is not correct, as it's just a bunch of steps with a fixed curvature - not following the radius augmentation of a (hemi)circle. I guess I need to use a circle mesh and somehow model the steps along it, but I can't seem to find the proper way to do it.
Any help will be greatly appreciated... Thanks for your attention !
BONUS (lol) : it's actually even more complicated that this technically, because the theatre I'm modelling has curved side walls as well. And the stairs inbetween rows follow this same curve. I don't even know if this is do-able at all. Here's a very ugly sketch to represent the room's layout :
