    We are proud to announce the release of the world’s first Door Factory: a plug-in tool for Autodesk Revit that makes working with doors a breeze.

    2011 Metric version available now, 2012 and Imperial Versions coming soon.

    Trial 2011 Metric version is available now as well, it has no expiry date but has limited functionality

    Go to Door Factory webpage for feature list, videos and Free Trial download

    Summary of features below (refer website for full feature list)

    -With the Door Factory, any Revit user, from novice to expert, can create the doors they need quickly and easily
    -Save time by creating doors on the fly, as and when you need them – allowing you to stay focused on your design and documentation processes
    -Create a huge variety of doors. Choose from over 40 swing/action settings to create swing doors, double swing, pivot doors, sliders, bi-folds, operable walls, garage doors and more.
    -Create any kind of door as a standard door or a curtain panel door.
    -Achieve consistency for all the doors in your project by re-using common components.

    The door factory not only simplifies the doors creation process, it creates doors that are incredibly easy to work. All RevitWorks Doors have the following features:

    -Instanced based Wall Alignment parameters that allow you to position the door within the wall thickness.
    -Parameters that are named and ordered logically making it easy to adjust the most common sizes and settings.
    -Consistent shared parameters allowing them to be scheduled together easily and logically, including standard and curtain panel doors.
    -Uniform graphics in Plan, Elevation & 3D.

    We need some help with the Imperial Versions
    The Door Factory comes preloaded with default values for widths/heights, jamb sizes, tolerances etc.
    These are completely user adjustable, but we believe they should start with a value that is relevant.

    I’ve attached a document which lists these parameters (with descriptions) – there are less than 30 to fill out.

    Any Americans out there who could help us out with our default sizes? We will reward with a free license to the most useful reply.
    Download the document and just fill in the default values and email to us (email address within document).

              Door Factory 2013 and 2014

              The latest release of the Door Factory is now available. In this version we have implemented some great features from the feedback we have received from our customers.

              New features include:
              • A new Inter-connecting door action has been added (i.e. used for interconnecting hotel rooms)
              • All doors are now available with flat jambs (Flat jamb option has been added to Single Swing, Double Swing, Hatch, Double Hatch and all Bi-folds)
              • The symbolic line-work for the panel within plan views is now on its own sub category allowing the panel to be shown differently than the swing.
              • A Release License button is now available allowing one to easily move the licence key to another PC.

              Features introduced in the previous release (v2):

              • New Contained Slider Actions: 1 + 1 Fixed, 2+2 Fixed (i.e. end panel is fixed) and Multi Panel
              • Single and Double door Hatches (jambs and trims to all 4 sides)
              • Stop Jambs can now have doorstop depth centred on the jamb (compared to having it as a specified depth)
              • Double Swing and Pivot 2-Way doors can now have opposing Swings
              • Jamb Head Width can be specified separately from the jamb width to the sided of the door
              • User Components are now available for Curtain Panel Doors.
              • Extra components have been added to the Panel, Handle and User components libraries

              All these new features are included in the new Door Factory 2014 and in version v2.1 for Revit 2013

                Door Factory 2016
                A lot has happened in the last couple of years.
                The main difference is our production of Door Factory LITE - the extremely popular free version of our Door Factory: it has almost the same functionally of Door Factory PRO but is just for single and double hinge doors. Download Here

                Summary of the New Features in Door Factory 2016:
                • Trim Base Offsets: allowing for floor finishes to continue under the trims
                • Symbolic Offset Hinges: allowing for plan swings to be offset to suit deeper walls
                • Panel Protrusion into Opening: (for sliding doors) is now editable from within the Door Factory
                • User Component Parameters: Additional parameters are now linked through to the final door family, allowing for more versatility within the parametric components.

                Summary of the New Features in Door Factory 2015:
                • Parameter Mapping: Door Factory parameters can now be converted to your shared parameter naming conventions
                • Jamb Types Added: All doors are now available with wrapping jambs (i.e. Metal Jambs that wrap the wall)
                • Double Door Panels: All double doors can now have different panels and handles to each leaf
                • Actions added: Now ships with 44 different door actions
                • Components added: Now ships with 18 different panels, 11 handles, 11 trims and 13 user components, all of them customisable and don’t forget; you can still add your own.
                • Parameters added: Clear opening width, Clear Overall Opening Width and Panel Protrusion into Opening (for sliding doors) added for single, double and sliding doors.
                • Default Naming: the Door Factory now allows you to setup default names.
