in my time here, our office have gone through 2 projects that require cold room doors that require them to be modelled & scheduled. these are typically the same material/composition as the thick insulated panel walls that surround a space which requires the environment at temperatures colder than ambient.
for you Americans, think eggs/cold milk/frozen meat rooms in your typical Costco...or a walk-in fridge in your local beer shop.
the thing with these doors is that the opening is, in most cases, the door panel is outside of the door opening & always larger. refer plan screenshot below -- a detail from a manufacturer we're using.
RED is the opening. BLUE is the door panel.
How do I input this in Archicad where the door is modelled & also scheduled. I'd like to have the freedom to be able to schedule both panel size & opening size separately.
I couldn't think of a way where a single door object handles both the door opening size & panel size and is able to be scheduled. i've had to resort using 2 door models for 1 instance -- one for the door panel (with 0mm thick frame) & another for the door opening.
