Bi-Fold Door Collection 2

Today’s release packs new features, improvements and fixes into one big update. Available now!

The New Bi-Fold Door Collection has been out for a few weeks now and we’ve received lots of fantastic feedback – thank you so much! For today’s release, we took a close look at all your suggestions and revisited many areas of the family to add what was missing, improve what wasn't perfect and fix what was broken. Let’s take a look at what’s new…

Threshold

A new threshold option has been added, allowing to show a fully parametric threshold.

Ramps

Alternatively to the new threshold, a fully parametric ramp can now be shown separately for interior and exterior.

Flexible Glazing bars

Additional to the full panel height, glazing bars can now be distributed from the top or bottom with a custom height, allowing more flexible setups.

Parameters are now ordered

Now where Revit 2019 is available, we start with this new release to move our minimum version supported to Revit 2015, which finally allows us to manually order parameters. While we were at it, we have also renamed and unified various parameters, so that they show nicely together and are as short and self explanatory as possible.

Fixed an issue where the panels would not show in coarse mode.

Fixed parameter for opening width (Single Sided Door schedule)

Fixed an issue where the opening width parameter would not reference the actual panel, resulting in an incorrect value.

Fixed an issue where the main frame would show through the panel and the glass would show over the glassing bars.
