Door Marker NCS 15: A Tale of Two Markers?

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hi Folks,

This is weird.

Look at attached two images.


One is of D1 15 swing door, with Door Marker NCS 15, not working.

One is of pocket door, with Door Marker NCS 15, working as desired. Tag shows Zone Number where marker is placed and object ID.
See next message for the image.

Tag shows Zone Number where marker is placed and object ID.

Same marker, two different interfaces. Not listed in duplicate library parts.

Doors shows in schedule, and recognizes Zone Number.

The obvious questions I can already answer:
1. Zones fill the room and are volumetrically appropriate.

Just to clarify the different interface.

The one that works offers the switch: Door belongs to zone where marker is placed

Library and Archicad 15 build 3898 are up to date.

I figure it must be a library problem. The simple question is: Why does the Pocket door marker work, and the D1 door marker not work, when it is the same part?

Nathan,
I can't reproduce this. By any chance do you have duplicates of doors or walls?

Are all the doors set to the same renovation status?

interesting questions.

No duplicates, doors are both listed as new, and classified as doors.

I also tried using display options to show the zone fill. No change.

This one to send to GS?

What happens if you take the Door that doesn't work, assign it another Marker, then assign back to it the NCS Marker? Does the missing parameter appear?

OK.

Next question:

Why would the marker/program behave this way?
