Double Swing Doors

Greetings,

Having just recently switched employers I'm trying to get some "old" styles back . One of those was a door showing a double swing. I've never had the need to customize but am in a situation now where I will need to start doing so. It seems as though showing a door with a double swing would be an easy task but I'm not even sure how to start.

Are there any simple tutorials or any suggestions were to begin?

 

Thanks

Double dhung will work, although you'll probably have to compromise hidden lines.

I would suggest using a custom display block to add the dashed representation of the door swing.

A very easy cheat way to do this is simply add another door over the top. Quick and dirty if it's just a one off.  Just make sure it doesn;t get scheduled.

If you mean "double swing" to be say opening 90 degrees forward and back, you can nominate a predefined one in design rules - communicating door.

Change opening % if you want to open more than 90 degrees.

The communicating style is the closest to what I need, now the next problem is for a double door.

Thanks, that's what I was looking for. I can live without the hidden lines.
