In the thread, he gives instructions on how the door families work, and a link to download the 179mb zip package: First important part. The way they work is you only place the ones that say DOOR at the beginning of their name, obviously. … Download Link for the v4 Doors, a sample file with the doors in them, and the Door Schedule accompanying them, is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/lcr5gobpuv…015v4.zip?dl=0
I recently posted about a Window Studio, now here is a Door and Door Hardware Studio (addin for Revit) … Assa Abloy Openings Studio (AOSS).
Unfortunately, it is very limited in availability. When I inquired about it, Assa Abloy told me: Not at this time we let it to professionals who we work with directly. The main problem is that it is an American tool for our North American brands. So sorry it is not available at this time.
Sometimes you may want to use a Door or Window family that is not hosted by a particular wall. That way, if the host wall is deleted, the unhosted component will still persist. Here’s how:
New – Family – Generic Model
Family Category and Parameters – change to Door or Window
You may wish to set to Work Plane Based (so you can schedule by Level)
Load into project
‘Door’ command – you can choose your unhosted Door family, but it does not need to be placed in a wall. It can ‘live’ independently.
These unhosted components can be useful if you want to retain schedule information for a door that has been removed from the project design. You can make an unhosted door that only has a few invisible symbolic lines in it – nothing that will print, but it will still schedule and can have a Description like “Door deleted from Construction Set”.
