Use this feature to create custom roads, street sections, and to assist with urban planning.
Road type dimensions and parameters can be customized as needed.
- Name - what the street section is called
- Sidewalk - paths that generate crosswalks in intersections
- Buffer - zoned area that separates a sidewalk, drive, parking or bus lane. Typically used for medians or setting back buildings from the road
- Drive - area that is driven on by a vehicle
- Parking - area reserved for street-side parking
- Remove - removes a specific feature
- White drag handles - drag up and down to adjust the sequence of features.
There are two databases of road types that are installed in TestFit.
