I've set up a schedule for my doors indicating number, type, size, zone name and number. Everything works fine except one door that is 140mm below the storey, that won't give its zone information in the schedule.
I've tried lowering the zone in 3D, subfloor thickness and ensuring the criteria for the schedule looks below the storey level.
Am I missing a field to get the zone to check doors below the storey?
By the way, ArchiCad 11 for this job.
Thanks guys for your replies.
Duane: As the floor was the lowest level and only a 140mm step in the slab, I didn't want to have it on a whole new story just for one door.
Erika: THANKS! That got the problem solved. Thanks you very much! I suppose I can see the logic in the answer, but I would have assumed if the door is within the zone, it should show in the schedule.
Anyway, thanks to you both for taking the time to answer.
I think so. I have the zone level -4'-6" and the zone height 8'-0". My rooms are 4'-6" below the story level and 8' tall. I tried making the zone only 4' tall so it wouldn't even be tall enough to reach the above walls but they are still reading the zone below.
The split level is similar to what you have shown. In this image you can see the the Ski Storage Zone from the level below is setting the doors ID. Where there is a closet below and no zone I get nothing for my door. It doesn't even see the zone on the same floor. In this case Bedroom 202 & Bath 203. The doors are a combination of sill and header anchor points. There is no difference that I can tell.
I have been experiencing this issue recently as well. We have a project that was developed as a remodel, and after it was started and addition with a basement was included.
We never added a basement story, and its kind of too late now without making a ton of extra work getting everything back to the correct elevation.
The doors are on the "crawl space" story, but schedule to the story below that and do not schedule to any zones. I have adjusted the insertion point to header to wall base, header to wall top and header to home story. None of these add the zone to the schedule or correct the story settings. The header (top of door object) definitely falls within the 6' height of the crawl space story, and the zone is set to fully encompass the full height of the door. Still no luck getting an association.
It would be great if anyone else has any ideas on what may resolve this. I have even replicated the story and elevation conditions in a clean template file and have no luck getting the door to associate with a zone
