"Show 3D Open" Viewport overrides

Question

It would be nice if there could be viewport overrides for doors and windows to be shown as open or closed. I think it could be similar to the lighting overrides we have now.

It could get messy and complicate things, but it would be useful when the design phase is wrapping up and construction drawings are being started. I'm working on a project now where we want to show interior perspectives and begin sections and interior elevations.

PS this is my first time taking interior elevations from a fully developed 3D model and I have to say, it's much easier than I had expected! I'm very impressed!

You are aware of that they can be set to open/close in 2D,

+ when open in 2D optionally also open in 3D or not ?

I have mine open for Plans but mostly closed in 3D, with some exceptions.

Or you still need more granularity, like different opening angles for 2D/3D ?

Yes, I'm aware of that. I'm asking to take that one step further.

I want elevations to show doors closed, but perspective views to show some doors open.

Ah, I understand, closed in 2D but open in 3D.

Never tried this before. Not possible.

So I would say a valid feature request :)

+1. This would be very useful.

@zoomer it is actually: Open in some 3D like (some) renderings and isometrics, closed in other 3D like elevations and sections.

I'd go a step further and make sure it's door by door. Sliding glass doors rarely need to show open. Neither do closets! Room to room doors work well open.
