Parameters (In alphabetical order)

Calculate Glass Area

type parameter in group analysis

Revit doesn't support reading values from nested families, which means that the bi-fold door family doesn't know if the set Panel Family has a glass or not. This parameter allows you to manually set if you want the Glass Area to be calculated for this type. That's useful if you have a door schedule with mixed doors with frame and full panel.

Cavity Closer Depth

type parameter in group dimensions

The cavity closer depth, applied equally to all visible cavity closers.

Cavity Closer Offset from Exterior

type parameter in group dimensions

The distance between the exterior wall face and the cavity closer, applied equally to all visible cavity closers.

Cavity Closer Visibility Bottom

type parameter in group visibility

Controls the visibility of the bottom cavity closer.

Cavity Closer Visibility Left

type parameter in group visibility

Controls the visibility of the cavity closer on the left (from exterior).

Cavity Closer Visibility Right

type parameter in group visibility

Controls the visibility of the cavity closer on the right (from exterior).

Cavity Closer Visibility Top

type parameter in group visibility

Controls the visibility of the top cavity closer.

Cavity Closer Width

type parameter in group dimensions

The cavity closer width, applied equally to all visible cavity closers.

Frame Corner Void Angle Flip Left

type parameter in group constrains

Flip the miter for the frame on the left (from exterior) between inside or outside facing.

Frame Corner Void Angle Flip Right

type parameter in group constrains

Flip the miter for the frame on the right (from exterior) between inside or outside facing.

Frame Corner Void Angle Left

type parameter in group dimensions

The miter angle for the frame on the left (from exterior). Setting this parameter to a positive value allows to setup a corner frame. The angle gets applied either inside or outside facing, depending on the value of Frame Corner Void Angle Flip Left.

Frame Corner Void Angle Right

type parameter in group dimensions

The miter angle for the frame on the right (from exterior). Setting this parameter to a positive value allows to setup a corner frame. The angle gets applied either inside or outside facing, depending on the value of Frame Corner Void Angle Flip Right.

Frame Depth

type parameter in group dimensions

The depth of the main frame, applied to bottom, sides and top.

Frame Material

type parameter in group material

Sets the material for the main frame.

Frame Position from Center

type parameter in group dimensions

The horizontal position of the main frame. A positive value moves the main frame towards exterior, a negative towards interior. By default this value is 0 (zero) positioning the main frame centred to the wall.

Frame UnderCut

type parameter in group dimensions

A positive value extending the side main frames below the bottom main frame.

Frame Width Bottom

type parameter in group dimensions

The width of the bottom main frame. Setting this value to 0 (zero) hides the frame.

Frame Width Left

type parameter in group dimensions

The width of the side main frame on the left (from exterior). Setting this value to 0 (zero) hides the frame.

Frame Width Right

type parameter in group dimensions

The width of the side main frame on the right (from exterior). Setting this value to 0 (zero) hides the frame.

Frame Width Top

type parameter in group dimensions

The width of the top main frame. Setting this value to 0 (zero) hides the frame.

Glass Area

type parameter in group analysis

A calculated parameter intended for scheduling, representing the total area of glass, taking Width, Height, Frame Width Left, Frame Width Right, Frame Width Bottom, Frame Width Top, Panel Spacing, Panel Frame Width Sides, Panel Frame Width Bottom, and Panel Frame Width Top into account.

type parameter in group dimensions

The outer height of the door main frame.

Opening Area

type parameter in group analysis

A calculated parameter intended for scheduling, representing the total clear opening when panels are fully open, taking Width, Height, Frame Width Left, Frame Width Right, Frame Width Bottom, Frame Width Top, Panel Spacing, and Panel Thickness into account.

Opening Void Offset Exterior

type parameter in group dimensions

Extends the exterior opening void to cut any walls joined on the exterior side by setting the value to at least the thickness of the joined wall.
(Due to the render offset, this family doesn't use the opening tool, resulting in only cutting the opening into the actual host wall but not joined walls.)

Opening Void Offset Interior

type parameter in group dimensions

Extends the interior opening void to cut any walls joined on the interior side by setting the value to at least the thickness of the joined wall.
(Due to the render offset, this family doesn't use the opening tool, resulting in only cutting the opening into the actual host wall but not joined walls.)

Panel Count Right

type parameter in group constrains

The number of panels on the right (from exterior) for the Double Bi-fold Door. Setting this value automatically calculates the width of each panel equally, taking the value of Panel Count Left into account.

Panel Double Glazing

type parameter in group model

This parameter is only intended for scheduling and doesn't change the visual representation of the panel glazing.

Panel Family

type parameter in group general

The panel is a nested family that can be switched with this parameter. By default the bi-fold door family comes with 2 options, a full panel and a frame panel. If the default options don't fully satisfy your needs and you feel comfortable in the family editor you can create your own panel.
We are going to add an article on how to add your own panel shortly.
