I'd like to point your attention to my new gdl-development using the profile-manager-profiles for door-Library-parts. My goal is, to get out the most from very few user-actions.
For me - the only 2 variables for a Door should be the egress-measures. The rest should automaticly follow.
Then - using profiles of course - i have to select some and as next - i thought - it would be beneficial to select Arc-Forms for the "above"-geometry. All this is now functional.
I also thought, it would be a good idea to "see" whats happening, when pulling on an editable hotspot and so, i implemented the visual construction-methodes when a hohtspot is drawn. As construction-methodes for the curves, i used the arc-forms from the german wikipedia. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bogen_(Architektur)
Um, what I the who nose what's it with a side of sugar. So much respect and just holy wowness. This is the beginning of a new era of expected opening.
Some improvements - simple doorleaf..
Very nice! I need to dig a little more into GDL on how to call a "Complex Profile." This has been something I have wanted to do for a while now. I understand the basics of GDL but need to learn more.
to prevent this competition from beeng lost here:
I made a snowball for this contest in here with all the possibilities of my "door with profiles and arc-types"
You can download the snowball-Archicad-file up there with this Door.
Dont forget to "thumbsup" 😉 if you like it. The others are terriffic too of course!!
Summary of the development:
The dome itself was made also by me 2013:
