Hello,

Thank you very much for sharing the wish!

May I ask which Gates object we are having here? In INT library, I couldn't find any Gate object from the Object tool, but we have the Garage doors in the Door tool. Is this correct what you mean here - Garage doors?

Looking forward to hearing from you!
Best regards,
Minh

Hi Minh, The garage door objects could do with a refresh as well. Large 6m x 4.5m rolling doors (metal and rubber), complete with hardware and structure please.

Hi Duane and Aaron,

Thank you very much for your help! I registered the request as DEF-5030. Hopefully, our Product Management team will consider implementing it in the near future.

Aaron, if I understand you correctly, what you need is something similar to Roll-up Door 24, but with metal/rubber sheets or panels, and with fully customized hardware and structure, is that correct?

Best regards,
Minh

Hey Minh, yes I think so. I’d be happy to send you some shop drawings to illustrate them more precisely. The are typically supported on a steel frame and the door rolls up into a drum. Clearance for the opening as well as all the hardware are usually critical.
