Add Full Opening Capabilities of Single & Multi-Slider Doors in 2D & 3D

TSarborsouth

The sliding doors need to have the same ability as swing doors to FULLY OPEN. It limits how we can display 2D & 3D documents to clients when you can't fully "open" a space to show the intended result.

As of right now a (3) panel 11'-0 slider can only open ~3'-0", severely limiting its use. The only work around I've found without paying for 3rd party apps is to recreate the door with various 3D parts for presentation purposes then hiding or deleting once 2D & working drawings begin.

       I've included screen shots of what Archicad provides with their limited opening and then the doors how I want them to display built with posts and beams.

The 2 panel door is correct.

Don't forget there is usually a handle/locking device on the opening panel, so it can not slide completely behind the other panels.

That is not to say you may be able to get doors with some sort of concealed handle, just not usual in my experience.

 

The same will happen for the 3 panel door, the end panel can't go all the way behind the other 2 panels.

It should open more that it does in your images but I can't say why it does or doesn't as I don't use the standard library objects.

These are for interior sliders no handles necessary acting more like a room divider. See picture for reference from sliding doors in my office, they all collapse back into the same plain allowing a room to be closed off or to divide 1 room into multiple.

They are from AC 26.0.0 v1 USA (4034)

I don't have the USA library and I believe it is a little different to AUS library when it comes to doors and windows.

In the AUS library we can do what you want.
