Barn Doors
SoftPlan Version:
2014 Plus

Do we have a way in 2014 to show barn doors, the kind that hang on a track on the outside of the wall and slide ?

They are called Face Sliding doors.

OK, thanks Bill, now how did you assign a door texture to it ?   The default face sliding door is a glass door ( like a patio door )

but I didn't see where I could change that to a solid door of some type ?

 

Thanks !

Face Sliding Door

The door I showed was a custom door I made for a barn project. If you want something different than what SoftPlan provides you have to make a custom door.

The basic method for making a custom opening can be seen at Closed Shutters. Just make it a Face Sliding Door type instead of the Window type shown in the tutorial and also omit the part about making it Hidden.

I know this is an old thread, but I just had a "D'OH" moment.  Over the past couple of years, I'll always drawn these doors manually with a cased opening (arch) and a rectangle on the floor plan.  Of all the questions I've aksed, I didn't think to ask about these doors.  I just assumed this couldn't be done for some reason.  Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for the great info, Bill.

Good info here.  I had to

Good info here.  I had to draw some of these recently but did so by hand since I didn't have to do any interior rendering.  Its was also in v13 prior to my upgrade.
