VW2017 Bi-fold / sliding/ folding doors

Recommended Posts


I've been trying to create generic bi-fold/ sliding/ folding doors using the door without success, although you can get fairly close (but only a maximum of 4 panels)

Any hints/ tips on how to create these?


These are very popular in the UK, maybe not so much in the US and other regions....?

No - they are popular here in the U.S. as well, you still have to create your own symbol (unless you happen to live in AUS/NZ where you can use the WinDoor plugin :| ).


Here is another related thread on this topic. If you happen to have SketchUp, you can use the NanaWall plugin (mentioned in that other thread) to create your multi-panel folding / sliding door, and then import that into Vw.


NanaWall also has some Vectorworks format models of their door assemblies.
