that for sure. and trust me i am doing a bunch... can you at least point me towards the right place to experiment... ? in the scatter/replicate or somewhere else...? (is there a free transform tool similar to photoshop?)
I know how this little problems can consume time and so i uploaded two very simple spiral stairs for you, i made in another 3d application. Just took me 3 minutes, so no big thing but hopefully will help you.
I put both in an obj file (just delete the geometrie you don´t need). I think Vue should open obj´s but i am not sure...didn´t try it out.
