Hey guys,

I've got this weird situation when trying to place a D24 object in my interior walls. When I place the door and it swings towards the side I picked as "exterior" it works fine. But if I flip the swing, away from the "exterior" side, it sits away from the jamb. I can't for the life of me figure out why.

Can someone help me identify the setting for this?

Hello,

Thank you very much for sharing and I am very sorry about the issue!

Depend on the types of wall, there could be different reasons that might cause this. To help with the investigation, is it possible to share with us a sample PLA file that contains the same wall and door in the screenshot?

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Best regards,
Minh

Is your door frame thickness = wall thickness? Where is that setting? I don't see that.
Where is your Wall reference line? Center

Hello Minh,

Please see attached. Doors 2 & 3 and Doors 4 & 5 are identical as far as I can see. The only difference is the swing towards the exterior or interior side. If it swings towards the exterior side, it works fine...if it swings towards the interior side, it jumps away from the wall.

Here's a link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/zketi5lsb3x7r ... e.pln?dl=0

Hopefully you can figure it out.

Thanks!

Hi,

Thanks for the file! After some tests, I believe that this particular door is corrupted somehow. I compared its settings with the neighboring one and found nothing special. If I use Parameter Transfer to pickup parameters from the "good" door and inject them to the "bad" door, it should jump to the wall's face.

Please let me know if it helps!
Thank you very much!

Thank you Minh, I'll do that, not sure how the door got corrupted, but that does work.

That could be a USA versus INT library version.
In the AUS library (I believe is similar to the INT library) that door even has a different name (Door 24 versus D1 24).
