staircase generator

First of all, thank you very much to provide such useful software for open source community.

I always having trouble with the staircase provided in furniture, and I have zero knowledge about 3D modelling.

I wish there is an easy way to create staircase met every user need.
I think staircase generator would be a great idea for all of us.

Staircase generator I mean is like :
1. first, we need to choose which kind of staircase we are going to regenerate. i.e : L shape staircase, U shape staircase, direct staircase.
2. Then, we need to enter how many steps for each part of stair case. For example : I choose L shape staircase, the lower part of the staircase is 4 steps, and the higher part of the staircase is 11 steps.
3. Last, we need to input how is the height and wide of each steps.
and voila, the software generate a staircase for us.

Anyway, this is just my two cents. If i am asking too much, I am really sorry.
And again, sorry for my bad English.
Hope everyone understand what I am trying to describe.

Re: staircase generator

+10 on this!
My staircases are never cookie-cutter, and they almost always require a special model, so of course i would support this.

Altho it would be very complicated, this kind of customization would help take SH3D out of the "tinkering" genre of software to something more serious.
This probably would be best suited as a plugin, but hopefully such a feature would allow for curved steps, customized bannisters/railing and its placement, and multiple texturization.

I disagree on HOW MANY steps would need to be input, but rather the rise of each step, and the altitude that needs to be covered. Perhaps a separate option would allow you to put in a "break" for turning the angle of the staircase.

Re: staircase generator

I think this one and others could be a subject in developers part.
In my imagination I see an entry in Menu like "Tools" or "Generators" with few entries:
-shape generator
-stairs or staircase generator
-roof generator
-furniture builder
-terrain generator
All of this could be made as individual plugins.
First step was made by shape generator.
For stairs generator could be used as start point for plugin developers the code (free) from AOI named Array... in combination with shape generator.
