Graphisoft door with 2 transoms

Bruce

I have a door design as shown below, that I am trying to achieve with the out-of-the-box Graphisoft door library parts. I know 3rd party options are available (e.g. Cadimage), and I can also script my own...but that's not what I'm after.

I figured that this was simple enough to achieve that surely the GS parts would do? Note the irregularly spaced transoms, and gap at bottom.

You need to make a custom door leaf. Take a look here: https://helpcenter.graphisoft.com/user-guide/76693/

Only thing is you won't get the gap at the bottom as the door leaf will automatically scale to suite the door frame - no matter what size you create it.
The only way would be to include a very thin slab below the door panel that is the height of the gap you need.
If it is right at the edge of the panel and is thin enough you may not notice it against the door frame.

Or maybe make the bottom gap from a slab with an air space (transparent) material.
But that will only work when transparency is turned on in your views.

Also the transoms in the panel will not be adjustable with a custom made panel.

I should have said I also know how to create custom door leafs. However, they are not parametric - which is required.

I know the workarounds - I was hoping that there was a way to achieve this simple leaf without one.
