Sultana build log – Part 54

This details building the ladder. First, one side of the ladder is created. The fillet feature allows the ladder to be rounded off at the top.

Designing the side of the ladder

One step of the ladder is created, and a rectangular pattern operation creates the remaining steps.

Adding the ladder steps

Extrude the steps and add a copy of the side piece, and the ladder is complete.
