Note:- Any Duplicate files contained in any of my script packs can be used. Just ensure you copy the latest version of any file. These script packs are being built up using some common utility type scripts which are shared across more than one pack.

Version 1.1.0
Modified to stop error when adding Panels to Exterior Door frame. Script now checks for a minimum width depending on single or double Panels.

Version 1.1.1
Corrected error in script to set Door Frame sizes when using 2032mm (80") Doors.

Description Section

These Scripts will build Dimensionally accurate Doors and the GUI will show the English Equivalent during the setting up of the various options.

Just install scripts in any Maya script path and install Icon and Image files in Maya/Prefs/Icons directory

Usage Section

Type DVY_InExDoors in command line or middle mouse drag it to a shelf. There is an Icon file supplied to use with the Shelf Button.

This script calls a GUI where relevant Info can be entered to generate a dimensionally accurate Door.

The Doors are built with nominal frame sizes as follows.

External Frame Width = 60 mm
External Frame Height = 60 mm
External Frame Depth = 75 mm
Internal Frame Width = 30 mm
Internal Frame Height = 30 mm
Internal Frame Depth = 100 mm.
External Frame Cill Depths of 0, 100, 150, 200 mm are
available (default is 150 mm).

After Selecting Door size using Option Menu or Custom sizes select number of Doors 1 or 2. Then select type of Interior or Exterior Door design from the various option menus. As the design is selected the GUI will update the display to show a diagram of the style. I have tried to label each style as descriptively as possible

The script will currently build `Plain` 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 Panel Style Doors with Inward or Outward opening Hinges, which are left or right side Hinge locations. Double Doors can also be built. Also there is a choice fo Glass Panel combinations. The exterior Door frame can havePanels either or both sides of any width. The Script will add simple White Shader for the Door and Frames and and a Glass Shader for the Glass Panes.

The GUI has data field for Overall Door Width and Height and a Radio Button Group to set Cill Depth for external doors.

After building the Door the script will lock off unused attributes and leave the Door Group Hinge postion unlocked and keyable.

Note:- The Scale of the Door will be adjusted to set correct size relevant to the correct size for the Users Maya Unit settings i.e mm, cm, m, in, ft, yd.
