Pivot door type in building shell/door tool please!


Around these parts barn doors are designed by the contractor...but I do design large doors for homes. With a leaf hinged only at top and bottom using a recessed floor pivot and vertical bar into the  underside of the horizontal frame member.

Have you considered modeling your specialty doors and then using them in the door tool with "use symbol geometry"?

It works really well and then allows you to report your doors to the schedule.

Here's a quick and dirty example.

Hi Jeff, no but I will now try  "use symbol geometry" . Thank you so  much for taking time to provide the example. So encouraging. I work solo these days here in Macclesfield, England. And miss the educational environment of a large design office. So interactions like this are especially valuable. Thank you again. They prompt deeper understanding of the awesome capability of VWX. By nudging out of the normal track. The comfort zone is not the learning zone! Best, Mark.
