There have been a bunch of posts and emails over the months, regarding Nested Panels and Frames. In light of that, ive uploaded our entire Door Library for people to download and reverse engineer for their own benefit, if they are interested.
My personal belief is Door Content is so deeply rooted in particular Office Standards, that they wont be much use to anyone except in deconstruction.
A few notes about my door library:
EDIT: First important part. The way they work is you only place the ones that say DOOR at the beginning of their name, obviously. You dont place the frames manually, or the panels, even if you want a panel-less opening. Our schedule uses a Filter for "Panel 1: Type" set to (parameter exists), which will always be present in a Beck Door. We have a pair of VG Filters in every view in our template, and in every view template: One for panels, one for frames. That way they can quickly turn off panels and frames, tag all door using Tag all not tagged, and turn the frames and panels back on.
1. They arent idiot Proof. All the frames and panels are Shared. They depend on you not trying to put a panel in as a frame, and vice versa. I dont mind this. They also depend on you knowing that a Double Egress door requires a particular frame, and that it wont work if you use the wrong one.
2. Many of the panels are actually the same file, just with a save as done, and the parameter values changed. This is intentional. We schedule the Panel Type and Frame Type, and in revit, having a Family name and a Type name the same means they schedule as "P02" only, instead of "P02: Px." So we have a lot of these families which are technically the same family, just with different variables typed. That was how we accomodated the Office Standard.
3. The panels themselves have Nested (unshared) Sub-panels in them, for a similar reason. Given the opportunity to completely start over, im not sure i would do this, but i inherited them that way, and there are no NEGATIVE side effects, so i left them alone.
4. Swings are nested as well.
5. Most of our frames are commercial style. We use the exact same system (and have special Family Templates ready) for both Panels and Frames, so nothing changes for Residential Doors, or Wood Frames. We just dont have them stocked, since we dont use them often.
6. The Frames all start with F, or with NF (no frame). The Panels all start with P, or NP. There are a bunch of panels and frames starting with O, S, X, etc. These are ALL for use in the Commercial Sliders. Hard to explain the logic behind them, but they work perfectly. The Commericial Sliders dont report panel types or sizes in our schedule, since i used different SP's for them. They can (they used to) but since theyre bought as assemblies we WANTED them to not report.
7. There are a lot of parameters im sure most people dont care for (reference the Blog post about Throat By Host), but we use them, ergo they are there.
