I want bi fold doors - plain and simple

Question

Posted (edited)

In this day and age where every client wants bi fold doors In their houses or extensions - 

 

why do we stilll not have bi fold doors in Vectorworks??!!

 

So for 2021 - bi fold doors and maybe just sort out the following and I might reconsider my VSS...

 

section open gl rendering issue where it render the elevation in viewport (render elevation view /from behind the section line)

 

artistic rendering styles with lines working As they should in panoramic images without having to do a workaround.

 

vss rendering panoramic lighting correctly now??

 

dont think it’s too much to be asking for really..

This is what comes to mind when I think of bi-fold doors. If so, you can do this in VW....  

Are you thinking of something different?

Here’s an existing wishlist request for this dating from 2017. I’d recommend going over to that thread to upvote it if you haven’t already.

Tried that- but always crashed my Vectorworks when I used it previously...may revisit it when I get a chance...👍🏻

I see no one from Vectorworks has commented on this....but they have read it....
so I’m guessing we’re still going to be waiting around for this one...disappointing yet again 🤨👎

I made this with up to 4 panels.

When I want a special Door in VW and it does not work,

I try with the Window PIO.

Or vice versa.

More than 4 panels is the issue as they’re usually bigger doors than 4m wide and not always opening with 2 panels each side....

Well, 2021 has updated the door situations but....still no bifold exterior door patterns or greater than 4 panels...

 

only saving grace is they’ve added more panels (more than 4) to the sliding doors...!!!🎉🎉

@zoomer

Have you tried to do this with the Windows and have a bifold effect with more than 4 panels ? like 5 or 6 ??

No, I think that will work up to 4 panels only.

Haven't looked at VW 2021 so far, if there were any improvements

beside sliding doors.
