Frame stops for Door Tool


We need the door tool to support frame stops. These can be both planted or rebated, as attached image.


We need this for a number of reasons:

  • Correct visual representation in 3D and 2D views
  • The ability to visually check that we're providing the correct clear opening
  • For accurate scheduling

This is definitely needed for entertainment design where the shop often builds from the details on the drawing rather than buying stock doors.

As our Building Code Changed in 2015 and we need 860 clear path of travel. As most North American Door manufactures generally don't make a 860 clear commercial door the alternative is to go from the old standard 915 (36") door to a 965 (38") door. We have found the need due to space considerations, to use a 915 door so we have specified special order doors. The result is we need to show smaller stops within the door frame in some instances to prove to a building official that we have 860 CLEAR path of travel through a door. So we draw the frame stop in & mark all doors SIM. Having the ability to show a door stop in a frame would be great! (So would a standard 925 or 930 commercial door btw)

Just came to make this request, this is a must. My boss (a hand-drafting dinosaur) thinks I am a heathen for not drawing the stops.
