A very useful script, but how do I make these lines "visible" to a 3rd-party renderer that does not render lines in Sketchup? I assume I'd need to give the lines a width be converting them to a plane. Not sure how to do that.

I am wondering the same thing. Did you ever find a solution?

I ended up creating two dynamic components: one for single and one for double lines. When stretched, they will automatically fill in the appropriate number of lines. Not perfect, but works pretty well and renders fine. Here is a 3D Warehouse link:

If that doesn't work just search "dynamic parking lines".

Smustard plugins add command features to simplify repetitive or difficult modeling management tasks - just ask the thousands of users in over 80 countries across all 6 continents! Smustard began in 2006 with the intent of providing quality plugins to the SketchUp community and to help spur development of the SketchUp Ruby API. Smustard continues that effort through the work of the Smustard Team and the guest authors that post their plugins and help contribute to the SketchUp Ruby community. In case you're wondering, the name "Smustard" is a play on words related to our beloved SketchUp. If you remove the letter "S" from both words, you get "mustard" and "ketchup": popular condiments in American culture. Incidentally, the "Sm" sound is pronounced like that in "Smith" rather than "S-mith".
