For some reason when I place the parking stripes they do not lie flat on the asphalt subregion I created. The toposurface does have decent grade also. If there is a way respond. Thanks, Brian. Edward Rowse Architects.

After aplying parking strip select it, then on toolbar pick (pick host) select the toposurface, it will automaticly aply to it. Post edited on 2006-08-03 09:50:10

I just went to do this today and you can surely host to the topo surface, but the element is still flat- it does not attach to the slope.  What gives???

 

Any help here?

Okay- just created a parking stripe that works on a slope.  if someone who is better at this could modify and repost it would be appreciated.  this is just a workaround for right now.  BTW- dont set the slope to 0.  you will never get it back.

When using pick host the element then sets itself to a flat plane that closest matches the surface.  As the surface probably isn't completely flat its not going to be perfect.

If the main issue is for rendering purposes, what i've done in the past is drawn the parking stripes as sub-regions so they follow the topography perfectly.  Remember this is really only a resolution for rendering as sub-regions can't be tagged or dimensioned to.

 HTH.

wow- I never even thought about doing it that way.  Great idea!  I understand about the snapping and such, too bad you cannot dimension to topo edges- I guess its like handrails in section.  Those would be nice to dimension to also.

 

thanks for the info,
