In a jamb with Door Jambs

Recommended Posts

OK, I 'm pulling my gray hair out trying to get a simple commercial steel door jamb to display correctly in a masonry wall.  

 

When I set the exterior casing to zero width (workaround), the jamb displays, but the door is offset to the wall width, and the threshold is narrowed to the the jamb opening dimension.  

 

While I'm asking, is there a way to show a proper door configuration with a rebated jamb in CA?

Not all steel doors are equal, what is a "rebated" jamb please?

 

I would need a clear understanding of what you steel door jamb should look like in order to answer, can you help me?

David, I believe Griffin means "rabbeted".

 

Griffin, to answer your question, there is no satisfactory method I've found to model a commercial steel door frame, either in plan or 3D. Several of us have Suggested this be fixed, so far no joy. Again, if Chief is going to tout itself as suitable for light commercial construction, this is one of several very important issues they need to address.
