How would you go about these doors? (The never-ending multi-slider wish)


Any ideas on how to deal with these? We have many types of multi-sliders, I'm only showing the most complex 6-panel ones here below. I have not to this day found any object that would do that type of doors - presented exactly like below.

The ArchiCAD's basic library has a pretty decent object but only goes to 4 sliders (I can live with no pocketing there). It also has something no other object that I've found has - it allows to control for the panels offset (the gap between panels) that is crucial here. These 2D plans also show the vertical elements between panels and that's also important to us. 


So basically a typical multi-slider. I cannot wrap my head around GRAPHISOFT still not updating their libraries. Seems all they need to do is update the element that is already there, to allow for 6 (or more) sliders instead of only 4. 



Yeah, end up I created a simple door using LPM but still it would be nice that the default library would have the ability to modify the number of panels same goes with external sliding doors. 

In the end what is your Objective?
ArchiCAD 9 onwards

Have you explored the options of a custom build object for each door you use or custom door panels for the existing door cofig (example - apply to a 3 paneled slider 3 double panels)?

With CADSWIFT openings from Kristian this is really simple.

yeah it would be easier but of course if they can make it build in then it would great. Instead of paying extra $$$. 😅
