This was a very enjoyable piece as it allowed me to think more about the overall look as opposed to topology. I plan to revisit this at a later date to cap off the sides with another piece of geometry.

Please let me know what you think :)

Why is it considered procedural?  Are you able to transform it with modifiers?

Honestly just ballsed up the name :P could not think of the word 'modular'. However I am hoping to be able to figure out a script to set the number of steps and also apply a bend if need be. Would not know where to start with it though. Thanks for your comment btw :)

Check out Scriptspot. The guys there might be able to help you out getting something started.  There's already some parametric stairs scripts out there, but most are just basic primitives.

Oh cool! Hadn't heard of that site but after a quick look I can see it will be very helpful :) thanks for pointing me in the right direction

Made with a script? Cool!

Not as yet but that is the plan. Always good considering I have never looked at maxscript.
