- Now that we've got the parking lot…perimeter elevations established,…let's create some curbs.…I think it's time to get this 2% surface…kind of out of the way.…So I'm going to select it and go to surface properties…and change the style to no display.…Now it may be tempting to erase these feature lines,…but remember that they're actually…providing data for that surface.…So if I erase them,…I remove what's defining that surface…and I may need them later…so I'm not going to erase them.…And I also want to point out that…I haven't erased that surface,…I've simply set it to a style that makes it invisible.…
Okay, so we've got our parking lot…perimeter elevations established,…right to the point where it ties into the road…and now we want to start building out the curbs.…The best tool in the tool box for creating curbs…is the step offset command.…So let's get started with constructing a curb…using that command.…So I'm going to go ahead and zoom in…and the first thing I want to do is create this gutter line,…and it's going to be ending up in this area.…
