How to create a sliding door with 3 leaves in the Hanging Wall? Standard ones are only for 2 or 4 leaves.

Hi @kryha_skresla 

 

Maybe it is not the cleanest way, but it kind of works:

  1. Create a simple wall.
  2. Insert a 3 leaves sliding window with the desired final size of yours.
  3. Right click and Convert selection to morphs.
  4. Rotate 90 degrees to lay it down horizontally.
  5. Check surfaces and building materials to match your design.
  6. Select it all (converted morph).
  7. File> Libraries and objects> Save selection as...> Curtain Wall Panel
  8. Create a new Panel Class with CW Custom Panel 27 and adjust parameters as needed.
  9. May be you will need to Open Object and edit it to change 2d symbol, etc.

 

I hope it solves until a better library object is available.
