    Placing Gate Between 2 Steel Columns?

    Hi all, I've looked a round for a solution to my problem to no avail..

    I've been using revit a couple of months and I'm getting a bit more comfortable with it, but I can't find a workout this problem.

    Basically I want to position a metal gate between two steel columns, but I can't see how I do this without having a wall to place the door 'in'.

    If the aperture I have is 1500 x 2400 and I've made a door family that allows for 20mm at each side and 20mm at top and bottom (ie. 1460 x 2360) how can I just place it between the steels? Revit seems to require me to position it in a wall, but I have no wall in that area as the gate just fills the gap between the steels.

    I've attached a screencap with how it's currently modelled, but as you can see, there is an element of wall that is filled blue, that the door is actually placed within.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi matt_ed, Try to add a wall of the same size that your door, I know it sounds silly , but doing this you'll be able to place your door and as your wall will have the same size it will no visible anyways, other solution is to create a door which doesn't have a wall as host, hope this helps

      Wall as the same size as door! Of course. Many thanks Andres.

        Curtainwall tends to work well for gates like this as well and it eliminates the need for a host wall since you are swapping curtain panels out for doors.

          Agree, and what do you think about the idea of create a door which doesn't have a wall as host?, regards
