Sliding Stacking Door – Line Based Component Family

Part two of our multi-part series, find part one can be found here. A Metric Generic Line Based component is used to array the door panel. A new shared parameter is created for the number of required panels. This, as well as all the other shared parameters applicable to the door panel family, are inserted […]

Sliding Stacking Door – Door Panel Family

In this multi-part series, we will demonstrate how to create a parametric sliding stacking door family in Revit. In this first installment, a Metric Generic Model family is used to create the door panel. Reference planes are used to represent the width, height and thicknesses of both the frame and the glass elements. They are […]

Sliding Stacking Door – Symbolic Lines

Part 4 of our multipart series Part 3  Part 2 Part 1 In this video blog, we look at how to create a symbolic representation for the swing on the sides of a Sliding Stacking Door. Whenever the door is seen in a plan view, these symbolic lines will be visible. Reference planes and reference […]

Sliding Stacking Door – Sliding Stacking Door Family

Part 3 of our multi-part series Part 1 Part 2 A door panel has been nested into a line-based component which is to be nested into a door family. Shared parameters that are common to the line-based and panel families are also brought into the door family. That way the parameters propagate from the door […]
