Hello,

I am trying to create a family which contains a bifold door with 6 panels, three of them opening toward each side.

I mean, the door is divided into six wood panels, and I want to create some types too for this family, so that I can use different door widths keeping the widths of its individual panels equal to each other.

When I try to draw the open door in floor plan view with symbolic lines, I do not find the way to do it. In fact, once I have drawn the open door for the first type, I begin creating the second type (with different width for the panels) and then I want to tell Revit how to adjust the size and position of the drawn panels, according to the size of the door itself. I mean, the position of the panels in floor plan is shown at 45 degrees, so the position of the second panel coming from each end will depend of the lenght of the first one, and at the same time this point will have different locations according to the size of the door.... I guess there must be an easier way to do it, can someone please help me with this?

Thank you very much.

Sheila.

Attached is a bi fold door that I use. It may not be exactly what you want. Have a look at how the symbolic lines flex when the width is changed.

Any family with multiple panels I recommend you build a panel family(generic model, converted to door) first, then load that into a frame family(door family). Then set its parameters to equal parameters in the host.

If you need a Bi-Fold Door which has parametric Panels (set whatever number you need) adjustable in number and opening position as well as dozens of further adjustment possibilities then have a look at the Advanced Parametric Bi-Fold Door at http://www.revit-content.com/content/bi-fold-door-window/index.htm
