It looks good. An interesting approach. On the other hand I would rather the hole conformed to predetermined door sizes (as they usually are certain sizes--and multiple of the same door occur on the same building). With cutting components, copy and paste, move /array come in handy especially in larger buildings.

Hi pbacot, :)

You will be able to specify which ever door height and door width (door thickness too) you want, while the frame, doorstops, and surrounding panels adjust to the wall opening. In the same way, you will be able to specify frame dimensions, doorstop, door sill...

Do you mean to have a list of predetermined door size presets to choose from? Would that mean having presets for the swinging part only? or would that be for the frame and doorstops too...?

It's all possible. I've seen similar things done, though there are different units and door size standards in different places around the world... It would make things quite confusing on my side.

To start with, a simple type-in will take care of all the desired dimensions. And you could simply save that door as your own personalized preset.

Looks really nice. I hope though the hardware is not too detailed. I've DL'd door components that have full threaded screws and other interior parts. Can't figure out why one would want that. Every door would add KB and lots of layers to the model.

1. FlexDoor will be a little more detailed than FlexWindow (more customized parts and component definitions), though I am doing my best to keep the size of the file and the details as low as possible.

2. Depending on the use - close ups or plan views. Each requires different levels of detail and FlexDoor is currently being designed to be good for both.
I will supply a few initial "Locksets" (handles with a bolt in between) of different detail and shape to choose from. And the best is... see 3!

3. You will also have the ability to make your own personally customized "Locksets"! You'll be able to insert any size, shape, detail handles and lock mechanisms you want.

  • No need for any knowledge in Dynamic Component programming! You'll only need to follow a few basic instructions, and you can put in there what ever you want and delete what ever you don't want, and save the "Lockset" as your own preset.

4. I hope to periodically add a few "Lockset Packs" and dynamic "Door Packs" I intend to make, either for purchase or for free download in the future. We'll see.

5. You will all be welcome to contribute your personally customized dynamic 'Lockset' designs! (Same for hinges and doorjamb hardware...) I'll be glad to host them for free download on my site, with full credits to the creators. Could also upload them to here... or maybe to the 3D warehouse!? I'm sure we'll figure it out! :)

6. A "Purge Unused" is always recommended after changing hardware...

7. I've thought a lot about Layers - It bothers me too when I import a model and find that it just added a bunch of new (usually unwanted) layers. I will be adding just one layer which will have all the different hardware parts on it, so you can hide them all in one go.

8. There will also be a "Plan View" setting for those who want to have highly detailed doors and yet still have the option to export 2D plans without seeing the unnecessary details (lockets, hinges, clearances etc. will all be hidden in one setting).

soon, soon ;)

I've just uploaded the FlexDoor Hardware Dynamic Components to the 3DWarehouse for easy access.

https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/by/frandzel3d

If you're not sure how to change or make your own hardware, please see:
http://frandzel3d.com/flexdoor/flexdoor-hardware/

Feel free to contribute with your own creations!
When uploading hardware, make sure to add the words 'FlexDoor Lockset' or 'FlexDoor DooJambHW' to the subject field or to the 'Tags' to make it easily searchable.

Good Day! :)

Very easy to customize! :) (Models from 3DwareHouse)
And if you take the Logo as a Component, that's infinite! :enlight:
And here and following...
...it's only the "Door Pannel" who is modified, but you have also many other parts so... :ugeek:

Some variations of possibilities! :)

FlexDoor 1.1 Released!

1. New Door Rotation Options: For live model presentations - you can now choose between 3 door rotations: (a) - Instant (default). (b) - Animate Both Doors. (c) - Animate Each Door. - With the "Component Options" window open, double click once on FlexDoor and choose either door. Read the instructions carefully for how to change the rotation. Please note the possible performance differences when choosing either of the options.


2. Translations of FlexDoor to French and Traditional Chinese are now available! There is a whole website dedicated to the Flex Components in French! - If you wish to contribute a translation in your own language - please feel free to contact me for further details.


3. "FlexDoor Lockset 01_b" added to the 3D Warehouse Lockset Collection. It is also available when downloading FlexDoor 1.1.

If you've created your own Locksets, please feel free to post them on the 3D warehouse or send them directly to me, and I'll gladly add them to the collection with a mention of your name/company/website.


4. Bug-fix - The hinges on Door2 are now placed at the correct heights.


*(If you have already purchased FlexDoor - to access the update - please use the link you received in the original purchase email)

Flexdoor, Flexslat and Flexwindow are awsome and worth every dollar/euro. Been doubting weather to purchase something else like Doormaker or Cabmaker … but it's quite pricy. And I was tired of looking for the right doors and windows on 3D warehouse every time. Your Dynamic components are awsome, and make use of all the functionalty already available inside SketchUp… Now I encourage you to go for the “FlexStairs" and “FlexCabin” maybe even “FlexRoof" ;-) if you dare …. gr. Frank

So very glad! :D Hearing things like this is what keeps me going!

I've got many additional Flex components planned. The list is long. A few are already working, but not ready for release yet.

FlexStairs is on the list. What would a FlexCabin be? Or is it a FlexCabinet!? (Cabinets/KitchenWare is a whole world in itself...)
How do you imagine a FlexRoof?
What kind of roof would it be? How would it look?
How would it work?
