Extrude along path

I’ve been looking for a long time for a smooth way to extrude surfaces along a rotating path. For example, a staircase.
For a project I have to extrude a banister along a rotating staircase but I can’t do this at all. I’m using 1001bit - tools (extrude selected profile along selected path) but it doesn’t work.
Can someone help me?

Try Eneroth Upright Extruder extension, or Follow Me tool.

I have already tried but it does not give the desired result.

Profile builder is very good. Profile Builder | mind.sight.studios
TutorialsUp recently did a series of videos on it, here’s the 1st:

Hi, I’ve also tried profile builder, but I don’t get the desired result.

There are also hidden lines and faces on the original path.

hello, thank you, but may i ask how you did this?

I used CLF Perpendicular Face Tools and placed a few faces along the path, then I used Curviloft.

No railings on the left side of the stair? It wouldn’t meet the code in our parts. Unsafe at any speed.
