Alfresco Folding Window Serving hatch

Recommended Posts

I wish to create a folding window from my kitchen into the alfresco. Is there a way in Home Designer Pro 2018 to offset the way a window opens, to being off centre when creating a bi-fold door made of glass. I attach photo of my first attempt and a real photo of what the result should look like.

In my attempt I could only have 2 folds and they opened in the center, whereas the real product has 3 folds and opens offset to one side.

Can anyone give any tips if a manufacturer catalogue item is closer to what I am trying to achieve, or a trick on how to edit the bi-fold door I used to try to mimic this hatch?

I see you said Pro, but you can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see mine for an example) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

Search the site for nana. You will find info on a door symbol that may be useful.

Eric,

I've done the signature thing as you suggested. I was already attempting to use Nana wall, their WD66 product is almost exactly the right thing. The challenge I was having with it is it is behaving like an object, and not like a door or a window. 

I've watched the video's on how to do this, and I think I'll be able to figure it out. Mine is a little different as the bottom of door is at the height of the kitchen work surface. It's fighting me a little, but I think I'll be able to figure out what is blocking me from placing the Nana wall in the door opening. I think the issue is that I'm placing it at kitchen work surface height. 

and there are differences in floor height between the kitchen and the alfresco.

Thanks for your assistance.

That's because it is an object and not a window or door. You should be able to move it freely by holding the Control key, and Transform/Replicate and Point to Point move are also sometimes useful.

 

And thanks for the signature.
