An extremely flexible Double Pivot Door with an adjustable opening, frame, panels, offsets and tolerances. This door uses the method of nested and shared families, meaning the panel, door handle and door lock can be modified without editing the family itself, allowing for an extreme amount of flexibility and customisation without overloading the family with too much complexity. To learn more about how nested and shared families work in the Double Pivot Door, check out our tutorial posts.
This family is in the process of being updated to be compatible with the new RevitHQ template, all past and present purchases are entitled to all future updates of the family. If using these families in conjunction with already updated families such as the Single Swing Door and Double Swing Door, please take care not to mix old and new nested families as this will cause errors in their appearance. We appreciate your patience and we will inform all purchasers once the upgraded door families are ready to be downloaded.

Detail Items (Glazing Flair)
Detail Items (Slab Recess)
- Added Panel Tolerance parameter to allow for a tolerance gap between the panel and frame.
- Added schedulable clear opening width and height.
- Updated version to Revit 2017.
- Moved hardware families to a single nested and shared container family. This is a fundamental change to the construction of the door families, removing the need to host the handle and lock on panel family its self. This improves the stability of the family, as well as removing the warning error that occurs when editing the family in Revit 2018 and above.
- Re-organised the order of parameter to be more logical and even clearer.
- Re-named parameters that were using the ANZRS suffix to parameter names that would more logically fit with similar parameters. Currently, ANZRS parameter listings are inadequate to cover the variety of adjustable feature these door families include. Having some parameter with a suffix of ANZRS and some without was unclear, messy, and had the potential for confusion.
- Removed the instance parameters of Handles_Visible and Locks_Visible to avoid confusion. If a door doesn't need handles or locks an empty nested container family can be equipped, and also scheduled as such.
- Added the option to represent the doors in Coarse and Medium detail modes as either solid or glazed. These are both simplified representations. If an accurate representation is needed the Fine detail mode will show the actual 3D modelled panel family, allow greater flexibility in its representation.
- Handle and Lock material changes have been moved to the individual nested families type properties. This allows less complication when a custom handle or lock has been modelled with more than one material applied.
- Fixed issues with wall layer wrapping when frames were disabled, specifically:
- When frames are disabled wall layer wrapping now wraps completely around the wall end.
- Fixed errors within the family when the wall layer wrapping offset had been applied and the frame was then turned off.
- Updated the functionality of the panel position to be more logical. Previously, when the frame from disabled, the frame offset position controlled the custom location of the panel. This was confusing. Now when the frame is disabled, the panel position parameter will control the location of the panel. When the frame is enabled, the panel position will still control the location of the panel, but constrained within the extents of the frame.
