Doors with built-in ADA clearance + approach boxes

Question

It would be really amazing if doors could show the approach clearances in their own classes.  I to understand that this would be complicated - but I think there is only 6 common senariors:

here could be an ADA section of the door settings that just has " FRONT APPROACH - PULL SIDE / FRONT APPROACH PUSH SIDE / HINGE APPROACH PUSH SIDE etc check boxes that would turn on an off those dashed boxes with the ability to choose the class that control the appearance and visibility of those boxes.

This would be a very useful addition. OzCAD's Windoor PIO has similar functionality for the Aus and NZ markets so it should be acheivable with the built in Door PIO given the recognition that this an everyday requirement to comply with mobility access standards. No doubt the dimensions will vary around the world so control for localisation will be essential, similar to the stair PIO.

Hopefully Vw will implement this functionality one day, or at least just buy it from WinDoor.

@PVA - Jim said he submitted a request for this over four years ago. (LINK).

Yes we ended up using the Windoor class for so many AS1428 compliant line work that we really should surface it up the tree.

Would be great if there was consistent means for plug-ins to show regulatory compliance information.

 

It could be a Detail level in it's own right.
