Garage Door Adjustable Track Rail Height


Does anybody know of an object which allows for a vertical track above the door (10' tall door in a 13' tall room)? I see a lot of deficiencies in the overhead door objects available, including additional panelization options. I created my own custom panel here. See attached image. I am using the D1 Garage 03 22 door tool (in AC 22). Screen Shot 2022-06-29 at 11.49.01 AM.png

Agreed. I have the same issue and question.

I've been meaning to write this into my garage door, maybe I will sooner than later

My work around, regarding CD, is to copy/paste the final drawing creating a 2D version (Interior Elevation or Building Section). I move this pasted drawing across from the original. Adjust that 2D drawing Garage Door track height, while having the BIM drawing preserved. Within my Sheet Layout, I display only the 2D Drawing. Not an ideal solution, but works for now.
