Custom Doors

Recommended Posts


I have a custom door I made based on an actual product that I would like to use in my model.

However, I do not know how to create the symbol so that it can be inserted into a wall and have it automagically create the opening in the wall.

Is there a way to do this?

With the Design Series versions of Vectorworks, you can use the Door tool and choose Use Symbol Geometry on the Door Settings. That way, the Door can be IDed with the ID label tool.

However, in Fundamentals, you can't do this.

Instead, create a symbol from your door, (Modify > Create Symbol) and on the Create Symbol dialog, enable Insert in Walls.

Hope that helps
