pocket door with pull

Recommended Posts

Has anyone come up with a pocket door with a pull yet?  I was trying to make one with a 6 panel door

but can't figure out how to do a cut out for the pull/lockset.  Can't convert it to a solid.

Dennis, this has been complained of for years (many versions), I have no idea why they just do not fix it as this gets suggested evey year I have used the software since 1995.

David, I was hopping someone had make a door with the latch/lock/pull in SketchUp as part of the door so it could be assigned to

the pocket door once installed or as a default.

In theory, a latch/pull symbol could be created as a hardware item and assigned in the Door dbx.  However, Chief suppresses all hardware on Pocket Doors.  It would be possible to create Door Symbols that have the latch/pull built in but you would need to have a door symbol for each type of door that you would need (slab, panel, 2-panel, 4-panel, 6-panel, etc.)  In addition, we would probably need options for raised panel vs shaker style, etc.

 

It would, IMO require a rather extensive library of doors.  It would be much simple if the software could be tweaked to allow hardware to be shown on pocket doors.  There are very few options for hardware on pocket doors so the software solution should be less work than creating dozens of door symbols.

So, just for fun I did this symbol in Chief.  It's just a slab door but it has a pull set in at +36".

 

Note:  The pull will only show when the door is in the closed position since Chief doesn't just move/offset the symbol when it's open - it just draws it's own representation of the pocket door.

 

  So I copied my symbol and offset the x origin 15".  That gives a Pocket door half open for a 30" wide door.

Hi DJP,

 

With us still, you are.  Nice to see, it is.

 

Truly, I'm delighted that you seem to be doing well.  Have you had a complete remission?

They are X6.  I don't know if they could be used in X5 - probably not.

 

Maybe they could be exported from X6 to 3DS and imported into X5.  That's how we used to do it before X2

Thanks Joe,Will have to try that.

Working on a plan already started in x-5.

Have only been playing in x-6 to get familiar with new stuff.

Have a great week,Ken

I get the error message when I place the door

I have no idea what caused that.  You should just go ahead and send it to Chief.
