How to create custom door layouts ?

Hi! How to create custom door ? like that one below:

kosta_0-1645533250635.png

 

As you can see it has a door at right side and 2 frame divisions on the left side.

Can I easily edit or create any custom door layout? Maybe somehow rearrange existing elements and not create those totally from scratch.

Hello @kosta,

 

You are able to model this with curtainwall tool !

I know but I would rather do that with door as door and not cheat with using another objects

@Barry Kelly promised me a guide through that workflow )

I remember saw something like that and it was done by changing some big list of data or something like that, not going to speculate I just dont remember but fact is Archicads library isnt covering some common door layouts, that really needs improvement. And ability to see results on drawing while editing elements is another this time HUGE request. 

You are able to model 3 doors and hide lines between. There is 3 pictures below to show you how to do.

 

Using another tool than door is not a cheat. You are able to model a ceiling with the slab tool. 😉

Curtain wall as mentioned although it may be a little tricky getting a detailed frame.

It depends on how detailed you want it.

I believe you can use custom profiles for the frames.

 

Standard door objects if they can do this.

I don't use the standard doors - I know you can definitely have one side  - not sure about a second one on the same side.

Looking quickly in the AUS library, I don't see a door with double sidelight.

 

But you could try ganging a door and a window/s next to each other.

 

3rd party door objects - but they will cost you money.

 

Make your own.

You can use Library Part Maker if it is available to you - I think you need a Select Service Agreement (SSA).

 

Or you can make your own doors and windows from slabs.

This is how to make a window, but it is similar for doors.

If you search 'Create custom door' you should find a few posts about it.

Aha ok, so no chance to modify a door to have such door like on picture, understand.

Thanks for help.

Not unless you are a wizard at GDL scripting.
