All Sliding Door Families included in this Collection (also individually available) share a set of functionality around the wall opening, main frame, panels, graphics and scheduling.
The wall opening is a crucial part of every door as it determines the actual dimension for structural work as well as details for any finishing work.
When you set the width and height of the door, you really set the outer frame dimensions (or the clear opening in case of the pocket sliding doors). The Sliding Door Families provide parameters to set the distance between the door frame and the structural wall opening, separately for each side, top and bottom when required, giving you full control over the frame positioning as well as real structural opening.
The structural wall opening is one thing, the actual exterior and interior finish is another one. The Sliding Door Families provide parameters to set the render offsets for exterior and interior separately for each side, top and bottom when required.
Depending on the type of the hosting wall you might need to show cavity closers. The Sliding Door Families provide parameters to set the dimensions and position. It also allows you to control the visibility of cavity closers separately for each side, top and bottom.
The main frame is fully parametric, giving you full control of dimensions and advanced settings like undercut and corner miter.
The Sliding Door Families provide parameters to separately set the width for each side, top and bottom. You can even set the bottom frame width to zero for a top-hung setup.
The Sliding Door Families provides a parameter that allows you to extend the side frame to the structural slab (for example for top-hung sliding doors).
The Sliding Door Families provide parameters the setup interior and exterior facing corner solutions at any angle, taking care about the frame as well as wall opening.
The Sliding Door Families provide a fully parametric threshold that can be optionally shown.
Alternatively to the threshold, a fully parametric ramp can be shown separately for interior and exterior.
The Sliding Door Families provide parameters to customize the appearance, number and opening state of panels.
The panel is a nested family which allows you to create and load customized variations that automatically adjust in size and positioning based on the set number of panels. By default the Sliding Door Families come with 2 options, a full panel and a frame panel.
Slide interior or exterior
The side of the panels sliding can be toggled between interior and exterior with just one single parameter.
The frame panel supports glazing bars which can be adjusted in dimension, vertical and horizontal count.
Additional to the full panel height, glazing bars can be distributed from the top or bottom with a custom height, allowing more flexible setups.
Open, Closed & everything in between
The Sliding Door Families provide parameters to set the opening state for panels which is helpful for various use cases like great visual presentations, to show the space open panels take up, and more ...
Detail Mode: Coarse, Medium, Fine
The Sliding Door Families are fully supporting Revit's detail levels as well as subcategories to correctly represent your Visibility/Graphic Overrides.
Thanks to the parametric nature of the Sliding Door Families your schedules can show more than just static values like width, height, etc.
The opening area is a dynamically calculated value representing the net opening area when the door is fully opened, taking the size of the door, the main frame dimensions, as well as the number and dimensions of panels into account.
The glass area is a dynamically calculated value representing the net glass area with or without taking glazing bars into account. The calculated area takes the size of the door, the main frame dimensions, as well as the number and dimensions of panels into account.
