Rob, I also had this requirement for an exterior BBQ bar that had to have hurricane protection. I have used CadImage Doors & Windows for years and couldn't find a door option that would do this so emailed support. They suggested the window as shown in the screenshot. This is shown in the second attachment.

They do have a free 30 day trial and you can pay by the month.

Cheers,

Hmm. Have you downloaded the Installer and installed them that way? Page link below.

If that does't work I would email Support or phone them which I have also done in a pinch.

I stumbled upon some manufacturer specific items this week at a site: https://market.bimsmith.com

They have Nanawall product modeled as GDL objects. They might fit the bill. ???

We have a multi-folding vertical door option in our Archicad door and window tool, Infinite Openings: https://cadswift.com.au/products/Infinite-Openings.html
Ignore the arched doors to the left, it just some testing I have been doing on raking and arched panel heads.
Also I know the folding panel at the bottom is strange but its just to demonstrate that you can nominate the number of panels at the top and bottom (just as your would left and right in the normal folding door).

Let me know if you would like a free trial. We are happy to provide lengthy trials so you can test the tool on an actual project, so please don't hesitate to ask.
