…Vectorworks offers a number of customizations for objects like doors and…windows, so we can make them look and behave exactly how we need them to.…For example, in the Door tool,…under Preferences, I can specify a myriad of options.…Remember, there are 2D and…3D representations of the door symbol, as it's a hybrid object.…Most of the modifications are only going to be visible in 3D views.…I really want to see how these changes affect the 3D view.…So I'm going to set my Preview here to Right Isometric and OpenGL.…
Configuration is one of the more dramatic changes and offers options…like Pocket Simple, Swing Simple, or even Double Acting.…For now, I'm going to use Swing Simple.…Next, I can change the Leaf type, Solid, Glass, Panel, or…a Custom leaf type loaded from one of the libraries.…I'm going to click Panel, and now I can control every aspect of…the panels of the door from how many vertical and…horizontal panels I want, to their sizes and rails.…
I can add features, like Sidelights, to my door.…Add and adjust a Threshold.…
