I've created this curved wall using the spin tool, however I need to make it slope down giving me equal space above the treads.

I tried using the screw modifier on a seperate test wall, but could not get any settings that worked out.

Here is the 3D in its current state, but the wall doesn't have smooth descent

Many thanks.

stair wall

  • $\begingroup$ @Chris Perfect that is exactly the shape I am after. However, how would I then cut around the whole shape, as 'occlude geometry' off leaves it with a slant? $\endgroup$ Apr 13, 2023 at 15:20

Providing the slope is constant you could just create it with a simple box and apply a boolean modiffier enter image description here

Personally I'd model it the other way round and start with the slope itself. I don't really think the screw modifier is the best way to go about this. You could recreate the slope as a bezier curve by snapping points to vertices of your stairs.

Then you could convert it to mesh (Object -> covert -> mesh).

enter image description here

Extrude it along z-axis, select the bottom edges and scale them to 0 along z axis.

enter image description here

And finally give it thickness either by extruding along normals, or by using the solidify modifier

enter image description here

This method will also work for changing slope which is probably what you are after.
