    A tricky door


    Hello

    So I have this door which has a "side panel" that is used for apartment numbers.
    What I'm having trouble with is the opening cut, So what I have done is extend the opening cut then created an extrusion to fill as walls (with a parameter that I can give the same material as the wall so it reads correct on plan, however it gives a thick line as expected)

    Other problem is that where a wall joins into this "fake" wall it give a warning as expect.

    Any suggestion?s as to how to create a door like this, I'm hoping the answer isn't to create a separate wall based family for the "side Panel"

    Thanks Everybody

    The Opening expects to cut straight thru the entire wall (which is not what you want). Since you can use either an Opening or voids (not both), I would eliminate the Opening in the family and create voids to remove the appropriate portions of the wall. I've used that strategy to model the newer Thyssen machine-room-less elevators (the control panel is part of the door assembly, buried in the adjacent wall).

      aha, I Didn't realize you could do a void instead, I was looking at putting it into a wall-based family and then using a void, which seem to give the same result just more steps.

      Thanks for the help, Appreciate it.:thumbsup:
