Does anyone know how to get parking spaces to attach to a site subregion of grass so that the parking follows the topography?  As far as I know, they will only attach to asphalt or floors.

Thanks

I have a makeshift solution to your problem.  Created a section of asphalt the exact size of your parking spot and subtend it to your grass.  From there, you can simply place the parking space in the asphalt spot you have created, and the asphalt will be non-visible.

I don't know what nhstudent is trying to say... my answer is no.  The parking striping is meant for flat plane applications. 

 

You cut splitface the topo and apply paint to the striping but that would take a long time ... on second thought - maybe not ... once your create the sketch lines.... no you can't array them in a sketch but wait. 

 

Actually -  do your layout using the parking ... export just the parking to cad then modify to form closed loop parking striping segments .... (each series of parking striping plus striping at end of stall) .  For each closed loop, start the split surface command and import the appropriate dwg ... that will automatically become sketch line, erase all but one of the closed loop segments. Finish the splt and do again for the next series.

WWHUB, thank you.  We are just now resuming this portion of the project.  I was considering using a duplicate style for the asphalt, and giving it the attributes of grass.  would that work as well?

You do know that what I suggest doing is a pain.... I caution you to do this only if you need it in 3D views. 

 

I split my topo for asphalt areas that are sloping and just assign the Site-asphalt material to that topo and Site - Grass to the grass areas.  You can't paint it as I previously said... you have to asign the material in the properties.
