Glazing a Door

Recommended Posts

Try as I might, I can't find the command to make a glass door transparent. I must be missing something simple.

Erich, you're not really missing anything. It takes a trick to accomplish. (BTW, you didn't say but I assume you are using v12.5.n.) You can choose a custom door from the available options, which include some doors with various glazing types ("Parts/Leaf/Custom" in the door settings dialog). Or you can create a panel door, and in "View/Special Classes/Int. panel AND Ext. panel," assign a glazing class.

Custom doors can't be edited in the same way as regular doors, not sure why.

You can create your own custom doors.

Add your 3d symbol to VectorWorks/Libraries/Defaults/Door - Custom Leaves/Custom Leaves.mcd

The door plug-in will scale this symbol to fit the door size you have specified, so if you want it just right, make sure your plug-in dimensions are the same as your symbol dimensions.
