I spent whole night to watch tutorials and websearch in order to make a parametric door swing. No matter what I do, using ref line or ref plane, once the angle is set at 90 or 0 degree, it just breaks. A ref line itself willg swing without a problem at any degree, but once a cut line is attached the ref line, the problem begins.

It turned out to be an incredibly complex task to set up a functioning parametric door swing with 0 and 90 degree (1 to 89 will work just fine. I thought 89 wouldn't be noticible once printed, but it was called out later.)

Can someone please help.

I am very sorry for being confusing. 

But it is zero degree that is the problem, not 90. Anything 0 to 4 degree swing, Revit refuses to accept! How can I make it go to zero degree?

I had success getting doors to swing correctly by "nesting" the plan view door swing into the door family. See the attached interior door family. The same method also worked for the 3D door panel. The 3D door panel has its own parameter for opening angle just in case you want the 3D door closed but the plan swing opened.

Thanks I tried your door. When I try to change swing angle in properties, it gives "Can't make type...." both in plan and 3d. 

This is another question, I see you have both width and height as parametric values. How did you manage to have different sizes appear as different on door schedule? I once tried something similar, but the sub types woudln't correctly show; I couldn't get different sizes on door scudule. 

The last question, if you can figure out why the swing doesn't change, do you think you can help me with double swing as well? 

Thank you so much.

I have no clue why these doors are not working for you. The attached file is a simple Project with a single panel door and a double panel door inserted in a basic wall. Try flexing them in this project and let me know if they work. As far as a "door schedule", I use the Door Type Name as the scheduled size. The attached Project also includes my typical door schedule. This allows me to list a double door as "2-8x6-8 dbl" or whatever text I want to use. Someone else may have a better way to handle a double door in a schedule, but this works just fine for me... and NOT a high priorty on my list of things to learn. Good luck.

Doesn't look like the Project attached in my last message? If it doesn't attach in this message I'll try sending you the double door Family.

I'm trying one LAST time to load the Project I've been talking about. If I can't get it to load this time I'm going to drink a beer and go to bed!

Thank you, dano3d, but the double door swing won't work, either.

I have a theory on why my doors aren't working for you. I'm still working in Revit v2013, and I noticed that you're using Revit v2014. I've had several Families that for some reason develop minor problems during upgrades to newer versions. The fix is usually some lost object linking to reference line. I won't be able to help you appearantly until I've been updated to Revit 2014.

Thank you for trying to help me out, though, dano. I appreciate it. I'm losing too many nights learning Revit. Quite challenging to teach myself a new software.

Swinging is differe from sliding, the parameters can work on sliding but not in swinging.
