Spiral staircase
« on: March 20, 2014, 05:45:55 am »

Hi!

I am currently working with an escape analysis of a large sports centre involving a spiral staircase.
Does anyone know how I can build the model with such a staircase?
I have read the manual, and can't find any specific way to do this, though I think I have seen a model involving a spiral staircase somewhere.

Appreciate all the help I can get :)

Please see this video tutorial for an example of how to build a set of spiral stairs.

Note: You will probably want to modify the walking speed on the step surfaces to slow the agents down a bit as they descend the staircase.

Thank you so much for answering on short term!

This helps me alot, but still a bit tricky.
Also thanks for good advice on the walking speed!
