Has anyone bought and used the Parking layout 4 add-on from Objects Online?
I have a project requiring laying out a number of different configurations of parking spaces (600+) on a 13 acre site. Due Friday, with the building massing. Considering buying something to speed up the layout. Any suggestions? Also the download is for windows or Mac - I work both platforms daily.
I am the author of Parking Lot Maker 4. I am of course biased but I originally developed the object for use in our own practice. Parking may seem a insignificant part of design but it is the most widely consistently used object in our firm. We use it to layout many parking areas including a recent commercial project of over 1000 cars. Basically works by first entering a standard car dimension LxW and if you have columns then set the number of cars per group(between columns). You can then place the object in the floor plan and drag out as many cars as you like, where ever needed. Does radial, straight and angled cars. Also shows/hides number parking space, show cars, disabled signs, custom texts and custom objects, ect.
The most useful thing about the new version is that by using interactive schedules you can count the number of cars automatically. Excellent time saver.
And many more features.
Anyway, enough of my pitch, maybe some others have some feedback.
