Well, professor Regelskis,

It is possible to write not really complicated GDL script for inset door and use it as a custom door. The easiest way. When you are using custom cabinet door, ArchiCAD reads A and B parameter for door size and stretching the door to fit cabinet size. That means you need to define size of door in script as A-thicknessPanel*2 and B-thicknessPanel*2. You also need to shift X, Y and Z for thicknessPanel.
Don't forget, that custom door must lay flat, not stand.
Can you manage, or need my help with actual script?

Is this a question - has it been solved?
Or a statement - it has been solved.

By 'inset' doors, do you mean doors that sit inside the cabinet carcass (frame), or just a door with an inset panel that still sits in front of the cabinet carcass?

@Barry the original question was being edited. Sadly by deleting the old message, not by appending. This is now a statement

I know I am starting to sound like a broken record but... our tool can do it!
Yes there is a very small yearly fee but it saves you far more than it costs; the response should NOT be "its another expense" but rather "Its another way to save time and money on an existing process".

This tool also has our unique and powerful Component Catalogues feature that allows you to create catalogues storing the settings of all the minor components of the object (top, carcass, kick, handles etc.) in individual Component catalogues and then storing combinations as assemblies in the Assembly catalogue.
