Can anyone help with stair step / slope corridor
« on: September 15, 2017, 09:04:38 pm »
I need to create a stair step-like corridor. See attached image.  X is 30-ft.  The steps are 5ftx5ft.  The bottom slope is 2.5:1.

When the slope can't reach the height (y) it should start adding steps.

Any assistance would be appreciated.  I tried cheating with curbs and shoulders and stuff but isn't really working out.

Attached my working drawing. I am able to do it with just benches but need to slope as much as I can to eliminate the steps.

ypu are going to want to look into "Conditional" Assembly - look at conditional Cut Fill

this will let you set your IF >>Then statement in the assemble properties.

A further note, name those conditionals very well....it helps when setting targets and the condition it looks for.

Ended up getting help with the subassembly composer. Works well.

As I've been told, IF you can do it with sub assembly links FIRST, doing it with sub assembly composer gets a little easier.

I find that sub assembly links allows one to test the logic, before going into composer, sort of a sand box.
