I have been trying to copy parking stripes from a sloped ramp onto another ramp on a higher level with the same slope, but when I paste it, the stripes do not maintain that slope and are placed horizontal. Please let me know if there is a fix for this. The parking stripes are for a parking garage.

Depend how it made (Family) those "parking stripes"... try to pick in that stripe and in the "Option Bar" see if there are a "Rehost" button, if so pick in that then pick in the new slab....

I am in the same boat with this. I feel like i have to create a floor slab just for the purpose of hosting the parking spaces beccause when  hosting the topogrphay they stray farthere than the topography's surface it self.

You can't expect a solid extrusion to drape on a non planer surfaced site.  Parking stripes are extrusions.  Maybe we have some new site tools in 2011.

I know this is an old thread, but still seems to me an issue when it comes to parking stripes, someone please correct me if I've missed an important update that solves the issue though...

A way to possible get around this and get stripes that follow the contours perfectly is to use sketchup (requires pro or ability to import .dwg into sketchup). 1) You can start by making a simple flat solid of your parking layout in the revit model (do this however you like, it just has to export in 3d).2) Then go to a 3d view and export your topo and the flat solid to .dwg. 3) Import that .dwg into sketchup.4) extrude your flat solid parking lines as much as you need to in order for the whole layout to be embedded into all the topo.5) select the parking layout solid, right-click and choose intersect with model. This may take a little bit of time to process, but when it's done, simply move/hide/delete your solid parking solid, and what you'll be left with is a surface imprinted onto the topo of your parking layout. I would select that and move it all upwards slightly, because you'll import this sketchup file into your revit model (make sure you give yourself a way to bring it in correctly oriented). After this is done, you should have your parking stripes that follow the topo contour.

There are pro's and con's to this method, no doubt, such as a pain in the neck to modify if your layout changes, and maybe color/material limitations, but it's an option non-the-less.
