This topic is about what the difference one additional parameter can make.
For ARCHICAD 22, GRAPHISOFT have updated all the Hinged Doors 22 by adding an additional glass parameter. This would be as a result of myself (& possibly others) submitting this request to GRAPHISOFT HQ for consideration.
Why is this so important you might be asking yourself. As far as I am aware it is currently undocumented as we are still waiting for ARCHICAD 22 Small Improvements to be released.
In previous versions of ARCHICAD the user did not have control over being able to separate the surface for door leaf / sidelight / transom.
But now with the inclusion of being able to separate Leaf Glass and Sash Glass it allows the use of standard ARCHICAD doors to take a new turn.
In residential architecture the user can now easily represent such an entrance door, without the need to model a custom door panel.
For this example I selected Door Leaf Type = H-V Grid and selected different surfaces for the Leaf Glass & Sash Glass.
How it represents in 3D window using OpenGL.
Last but not least some examples of doors replicated from a catalogue to save out as favorites.
