Door tolerance with custom doors?



How do you deal with tolerance when creating custom doors?

The get no setting for the tolerance...

Doesn't the Custom Door just scale to the specified leaf size and all other tolerances are part of the frame GDL settings? Or do you mean something else?

I know a custom door leaf will scale to fit the door frame you use it in - no matter what size you model it.

If the frame object does not have an option for tolerances, then maybe you could model an extra air space slab (invisible/transparent material) with no perimeter lines around your door slab before you save it as a custom door.

Effectively you are modelling the tolerance.

I haven't tried it but it might work.

It won't be adjustable but should create a small gap if it does work.

Dell Precision 3510 - i7 6820HQ @ 2.70GHz, 16GB RAM, AMD FirePro W5130M, Windows 10

I can model pretty much what I want but since it's BIM I need to schedule the tolerances (as well as unitsize and wallhole size).
