  1. Good Evening - Has anyone come across a door object associated with an overhead coiling style door? Manufacturers such as Cornell, Cookson and Overhead Door manufacture them but none seem to have VW-compatible files available for download and VW's BIMTool seems to find only one, small wood residential-style door and that translation from DWG doesn't seem very "smart" so far - much more like a drawn symbol. Thank you. Tom
  2. How do I change the ID tag on a door or window, without converting to unstyled? Currently all the instances of a particular style of door have the same ID tag! Not helpful. If I go into the settings for a particular instance, the ID tag options are greyed out....If I convert to unstyled, that defeats the object of having pre-prepared styles that can be edited across the project easily e.g. if Client decides to have a different shaped vision panel in the front doors across a series of houses, or we have particular product data to update the style with later in the project. I'm trying to generate a door schedule too.
  3. Here we go again. Trying to attach fire and acoustic rating to door style and get it to IFC. Seems very difficult. Followed my old recipe from 2015, but did not work this time. Any solutions out there? Getting really tiered of bad IFC capabilities..... VW 2018 SP6 mac @Jeffrey W Ouellette @gester
  4. Im in Spotlight, drawing a simple follow plan for an upcoming install. One of the doors is a Dutch Door, with a 7ft high opening, but a 42in high door. For the life of me I cant figure this out. Why cant I just indicate a 42in height for the door leaf? There is no "custom" option for a dutch door. Any suggestions would be helpful, thanks.
  5. Hello everyone, So I've drawn a curtain wall and now I'm trying to insert a door into it. After reading some other questions about this topic in the forums and watching some Tutorials I haven't made much progress. I've gotten to the point, where I edited the curtain wall with the "curtain wall edit" tool selected a panel and inserted a door. The problem I'm having now is that I seem to not be able to edit this door to my preferences. I would like to have a leaf made out of glass and the doorframe to be white for now. I would appreciate it if someone could give me some tips. ( Vectorworks Pro 2017/ Studentversion) Many Thanks! Dany
  6. The height of a door in a wall is currently pretty dumb. It would be much better if this could be set by story level, i.e. door height = FFL.
  7. Hello, I'm trying to put in my project this external sliding door. I cannot find the correct options in the door PIO (maybe someone can help me?) Otherwise I created this simple 2D/3D Symbol with the correct wall hole, but in top/plan view the wall is cutted the wrong way, even if in top view it's correct. How can I solve this visualization problem? I want to keep it a symbol or a PIO, so no groups. I have read on this forum about a plug-in for Vectorworks named Windoor but I have VW2017 and I don't think it's available in Italy. Here some screenshots Thank you
  8. Hey guys, I'm trying to isolate my door objects that have the number "1" for its ID Label value. However inputting this into the criteria window identifies objects that have 0, 1, 2, and 3 for their ID Label values. What am I doing wrong? Thanks, Raymond
  9. Hello, I need to change the difference between the unit size and the rough opening size for some doors for some of our glazed sliders, so that the correct information will read out in the schedules for coordination with ordering. I don't seem to be able to find an option for this in the obj info. settings. Anyone know how to do this? It would also be great if anyone knows how to change the units in the rough opening column in the schedule to read out as inches for further ease of coordination. Thanks!
  10. I am not sure why there is so little conversation about it. I find it very common to reuse drawings at different scales and lack of control over window & door tag size makes it very difficult. The only solution so far, from what I know, is to adjust text size in advanced settings but that in turn forces the text to be different size in every viewport which in turn when copying notes from viewport to viewport makes the whole exercise quite cumbersome.
  11. It would be great to have a standard door for use in disabled/accessible WC's. i.e. the UK Doc 'M' Standard (image of a typical Doc M wc below). It is massively useful to have the hardware shown on this type of door, mainly the pull bar. Helpful for determining clear opening widths etc. even from early stages. A
  12. Hi all, When select the show ID TAG in the door/window OIP option and select the show in 3D, so when i have the elevations it automatically shows the tag for that door/window, while is showing in one of the elevations on the other elevation is not showing wonder if it's a bug ? I've done: Classes are all on, same layers are on, the doors & windows that don't show the ID TAG on the elevation, when i go to the 3D model they're showing Tried to turn off and on on those selected doors and windows, Still they don't show!

  13. Hello, I am trying to build my own custom door. the option that I get from the door menu is not what I am looking for. I am familiar with sketchup and, it is very easy 5 min job. However, I spent the whole day on Vectorworks trying to figure out, how I can easily built my own door? There is not even one tutorial I was able to find, easily explaining to make my own door. Can anyone please help me understand the trick? I have attached the picture of the door I am trying to create. Thank you!
  14. Not to hijack the Folding Door thread; this would be a different tool. We spec a number of these Folding Security Grills. A great addition would be to be able to draw the overhead track and have the tool generate the the nested grills in a pocket. There is a simple calculation based on the length of a folding grill & how many posts are required that gives one the minimum size of a pocket that needs to be built.
  15. I have to admit that while the general cad capacity of VW is great ( I have been using it since it was Minicad 3.0) but the worksheets and schedules are atrocious. It just cannot be that every time something needs to be changed it needs another code - I am a designer not a computer coder. There has to be default shortcuts. Nobody has time to search for codes (most of the ones listed on the forum don't work) and all the time wasted.
  16. Is there a way to create a Bi-Swing door that can show the doors swinging at different angles? I want one door to be shown open at 90º and another to be shown at 180º. Is there a way to do this within the door objects themselves without creating a complicated layering of separate objects to get it to tag in the schedule and show properly? Thanks.
  17. Hi All, Quick question - apologies if there is an obvious answer, I did a search couldn't see anything. Is there a standard Doc M compliant (UK) or similar Disabled Toilet Door symbol anywhere in the libraries of doors? (i.e. larger size with grab bar). It's a pretty common thing to need and I was surprised I couldn't find one at a glance in the Vectorworks symbols libraries. Thanks, A
  18. I have a problem with my Doors in my file. I have 2 overlapping (!) Doors in a Wall. 1 Slider Door + 1 Framed Door to get a Frame for the Wall Opening. Both are "Styled" Doors (!) 1. As I activated Door Labels and saw them overlapping I thought I could just "flip" the Framed Door to "mirror" the Label this way. I realized that VW 2017 will crash each time I try to do so. So i thought, fine, I found a real bug and copied one of these Walls with its Doors in Wall into a new file to bug report. Unfortunately when I tried, VW will not crash doing same in the simple demo file. 2. So I thought it might be time for the typical "Reset Plugins". Unfortunately VW 2017 will crash each time I try to do so. VW will not crash doing same in the simple demo file. I will attach the non-crashing Demo File here first for illustration. The real File would be 90 MB or 70 MB zipped. BUG_DOOR.vwx
