Plan View Door Swing Not Showing Up  Topic is solved

Postby ianscroggins » Fri Feb 01, 2019 5:23 pm

Hi Gang, this is my first post and hopefully I'm bringing an easy n00b problem to solve. I've been using the Wall Cutter and Flex Door tools to place doors in my model. At first, they displayed the arcs for door swing in Plan View. However, I ungrouped my wall at some point and regrouped it and the flexdoors stayed dynamic, but I can't get them to show the door swing. Any ideas on not having to redo the doors or is that just a "deal breaker"? Thanks for any help in advance!

Hi Ian,

1. I checked out the model you uploaded. It seems that the door swing arcs were erased at some point. Normally the arcs are hidden (along with a few other sub-components that FlexDoor uses), and they could be erased if the 'Cleaner' tool were used on them, or if any other cleanup plugin that erases hidden geometry were used. In this case you would need to replace the doors with new ones.

2. If you try to move some of the wallcutting components you will see that their openings won't move anymore. If you want the door and window openings to remain dynamic, the wall must be a component. Groups just don't work well - Best to always use components.

If you need to explode and regroup (re-component!) the wall, to keep the dynamic openings working as you would expect them to, you will need to follow a quick 3 step procedure:
Remove Cuts > Make the changes you need > Refresh.

You can read a more in-depth explanation about this with animations and examples at:

Hope that helps,
Yoni
