Lathe-turned stair baluster 3D model

Lathe-turned stair baluster 3D model This is a realistic 3D model of a wooden lathe-turned stair baluster. A picture found in an old catalog of a company that produced wooden stair balusters has served as an inspiration.
You can use it as a stair baluster in your 3D projects, or you can make it on a lathe. If you decide to make balusters for your staircase or railing, it is important to use high quality wood in wood furniture class. If, however,  you are planning to install them outdoors, it is necessary to choose such a wood type that is meant to endure external conditions well (humidity, rain, temperature fluctuations, etc.). It is also important to do a thorough sanding and purpose-adjusted finishing - if the balusters are installed indoors, it is necessary to varnish them in accordance with the staircase, and if they are installed outdoors, a finishing must be used to provide efficient protection against external influences.
The 3D model's dimensions are 787.5mm x  44mm x 44mm (31' x  1 3/4' x 1 3/4'). If you need a stair baluster of different dimensions, import your 3D model in any 3D CAD software and make the necessary modifications.
Only NURBS 3D CAD file formats are available for download: 3dm (rhino 3D native file format) and stp (STEP)
For those who want to make this stair baluster on the lathe, a 2D drawing is available in dwg and PDF format.
