Feature Request - Elevate lines by Surface Groups

I think there needs to be an addition to the vertical design tool or a separate tool that allows a user to create containers of normally 2d linework to drape over surfaces. Similar to the drape objects but not creating copies and truly elevating the original linework. 



How I envision this:

  • Name of group
  • Select Linework
    • Allow for adding and remove line work
  • Select reference surface
  • Settings:
    • Drape
      • Drape only at vertices? Maybe this is a line specific question
      • Automatically drape when surface is updated
      • manually run
    • Offset distance from surface
      • could be used for some subgrade purposes or
      • utilities that are usually a constant depth below a grade
        • water
        • electrical
        • forcemain
      • landscape objects


I think this would be a great compliment to the create side slope and vertical design tool and help push 3D models a step further.

Thanks for considering!
