    RevitWorks Door Factory 2020 doors open in 3D

    A neat little enhancement from RevitWorks in their 2020 version of Door Factory - doors now have an option to open in 3D

    This thrown together little project I've been doing today is the first time I've tried this out and it is very nicely implemented - i.e. you can turn it off/adjust angle via Properties. The Enscape quick render shows the front door standing slightly ajar.

    Very nice feature.

    I don't want to seem presumptuous but my doors also do that! , I can control 2D or 3D opening, I just want to say that I've learned it here in the forum thanks to @Aaron's doors!! and many hours of reverse engineering

    It doesn't surprise me that Aaron's doors already do this as they are the 'Doors of Legend' of course

    I've only just now had a really close look at them although long known of their existence. Very impressive and I'm sure many users are benefiting from Aaron's kindness in posting them. Presumably people adapt the examples to their own door styles - I assume they can be converted to Metric?

    The doors I work with aren't really like Aaron's examples. Existing traditional pattern usually solid timber frames with molded architraves - and seldom will two doors in a project be the same, nor from project to project. The RevitWorks product is very handy for dealing with this seemingly endless variation in doors.

    Anyway, Mr and Mrs Client were tickled by seeing the door open in Enscape in my office this morning - and so was I. It's the simple things that amuse you when banjaxed on a Friday y'know

    Then you have John Pierson come along that can control the swing angle by a Pac Man slider in 3D.

    There actually is an entire Metric version of the old V4 Doors. They were given away during a session at BILTANZ back in 2016 or 2015, i forget what year. Glenn Sinclair taught a class this year at BILTANZ, about his experience with his doors, which were modified from the old V4 doors as well. I believe he shared them again in his lecture.

    Worth noting the new ones are much more advanced than the old ones, but yeah: The Frame styles are all traditional American frames. But as they are shared and nested, its a simple save as to a frame, to make way more ornate frame designs. I do them on projects all the time.
