Road marking, how?

Recommended Posts

I might be on a roll with questions today so please bear with me.  :ph34r:

 

I have done the terrain arrangement and now I would like to do some road markings (i.e. yellow cross hatching to show disabled parking bays and white lines to demarcate normal parking bays).  I found "road markings" in the library somewhere but couldn't work out how to use the and  have gone through the manual and searched the help data base to see if I could find a way of doing this (preferable in plan view) but without success.

 

Please guide me on the path of right...

 

Thanks.

Haven't done this before Keith ,but you are right there is nothing in my Ref. Manual or the online help in Pro 10.
The items in the Library are materials though not objects/symbols , so those two colours need assigning to something ...but what ?

will post back if I figure it out...

Edit The "What" is another Terrain Feature on top of the Road (very thin) , which you then colour as needed with the materials in the library. Not in the manual but there is a Tutorial.

they actually appear to cut through the asphalt if set at the same height/thickness

Yay!  Thank you for that link.  I wonder why my "How to create road markings" in the help search box didn't bring it up?  One would think that "road markings" would have been the key.   :rolleyes:

If you search here you won't get it but over at the KnowledgeBase (KB) you will plus a couple others on creating custom driveways and Sidewalks with patterns and inlays
