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
- 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
- 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!
