I wish to create a spiral stair but I'm locked here.. I've created the path which is a helix and the feature.. Which command is recommended to follow the helix path?

Thanks for any suggestion!

Rectangular Pattern.
Rather than attaching an image file - attach the Inventor file here.

The "wierd thing" is that this assembly/part must be fully compatible with AutoCAD (2008>2011) as if was built there. I wish to avoid complex techniques to build this stair due compatibility reasons.. I'm using Inventor 2012 Pro.

I am not familiar with analyzing or editing image files in Inventor.
Can you attach Inventor files?

I think I would use Frame Generator for this design.
