Inserting doors into wall(s)
Read 144 times
November 07, 2018, 01:47:49 AM
I have attached a screen snip to illustrate my problem. I'm using the architectual tool to insert doors into the walls of a garage, one double door and one single. I have created a block to show the door panel with a series of vertical grooves in the surface. I have adjusted the dimensions to suit by using the selection info. and I do get a double door with my block door showing correctly. However as can be seen frrom the image I also get another single door showing and if you look closely my "block door" sits on top of another panel that has no material assigned to it.
How do I remove the single door and the two extra panels. I've spent hours trying to resolve this and any help would be apreciated.Kind RegardsSteve

In case you don't find the answer with regards to doors.

I wouldn't use the door tool. I would use the opening tool.
To use the opening tool you define 2 blocks. A 2d plan. and the 3d version.

You can also drag a single block directly on to the wall.
When you define the block put the 2d plan view and the 3d on different layers, so that you can hide the 3d layers in the viewport.
I have attached an example of both alternate methods to the door tool.


I think if you use the door tool you need to use a pass through style door but as I said I don't use doors.

Hard to say as we dont have the drawing, but it looks like you have attached 1 panelBlock to the doorFrame and the other 2 to the Leaf's
The panelBlock seems to be very thick or maybe you have say'd they should fit the half thickness of the Leaf ??
And there is no material on the original doorLeaf's, maybe so we should see it better in the pic ?
I often use that way of making doors myself and find it very handy to make different kind of design.

Just make a "standard" door and add Block's to change how it should look like, more easy to change size etc on 1 out of many similar doors.

Torfinn I have tried this so many times only to get irritated.
Why do I get hundreds of lines in all different angles?  do you think the lines are because I don't create the block using primitives?
Or sometimes the block just wont stick to the door.

I use Solid Fill in Options/ Display, i see if i dont i got a lot of lines inside the circle, so maybe ….
I used a circle since that is a lot of small lines and used Exstrude and Compound.
I dont see it from top and in Render it dont show anyway

Thanks Torfinn I finally got it to work. Just a quick question on getting working drawings from these doors.
I always think a door should be open in plan - so you can see the door swing and closed in elevation. - so you can see what it looks like.

The architectural section elevation tools work this way but the detailing on the panels is lost.
The drafting palette will show the detail but the doors need to be closed. - and now I remember why I don't like the door tool.

I agree, open in plan and closed in elevation.
I only miss the swing arc if using Draft Palette, but i dont use it for that, only on elevation's.
I dont get the openingdirections anymore, i did get that earlier if i explode doors, but they was going wrong way so it dont help to much :)

I print 2 times, plan with open doors and elevation, perspective etc with closed, and if i dont save the pdf before i have print 2 times it all end up in 1 pdf file.

Edit; I use print queue

Thank you Nikki and Torinn for your replies. I posted two responses yesterday which seem to have been lost. I'm going to adopt the Nikki way of inserting doors, the "door insert" tool is too complicated for me (or there is something wrong with it ). Any how I'm happy with the solution proposed.Mant ThanksSteve
