Alright, I have a circular set of stairs with a stone wall for the "railing". The wall curves with the stairs, as well as sloping parallel to the stair treads. Easy enough. I created a face based sweep blend to create this condition properly. So far, so good.
Now, I need to apply a cast stone cap. I tried using a fascia with a profile along a model line, but that won't work. The model line stays flat along the level, it doesn't follow the slope of the curved wall. Therefore, the fascia is just a flat semi circle cutting the wall. No bueno.
I guess I could model the exact wall cap as a face based family and just set it on top of the wall, but then I would have to get the curve and elevation change exact. It sounds like a lot of work.
I did this a few years ago with an in place sweep blend, but for some reason I can't get the path to stay on the sloped part.
Is there an easier way to accomplish this??
Look at the sliding door going into the observation tower. The wall is a vertical wall with a slanted stone wall in front of it. How would you suggest filling in the gap at openings?
