I'm having a few problems with this door component. It must have been originally modelled by someone as a window, but I found it onliine somewhere because I thought it was a door. So the main issue is that it schedules as a window, but I need it to schedule as a door. I know I cant change its family type because it's a hosted object. Any thoughts on a work around for this other then recreating a new one as a door?

As a secondary note - I played around with the original file so that I could get it to look like a 4 panel sliding and stacking door, with an oversized frame which allows all the panels to slide past the 'room opening'. (Although as you may be able to see from the attached pic, it doesnt fully cut the walls properly - I can kind of live with that because I prefer not to spend time working on the object model, as I have never really played with family editing like this)

Any help with this would be great.

I think you will have to find a door but you might try starting with the door template, bringing this window in and make sure it is not shared - that will mean it will not be parametric.  Build all of your type data but just don't use it in the model. You will probabl have to remove the door cut as well.


Don't know if that will work.  THIS IS A BAD SOLUTION.
