Parametric French Door

Hello all,

I am still a beginner using Grasshopper, and I want to make a french door, where I can change the parameters of the frame and scale the 2 bars in the middle according to the chosen dimensions.

I don’t have the script yet, as I am trying to figure out a way to do it, but as I am not familiar with every component in Grasshopper, maybe you guys can give me a hint, what plugin I can use, or any component that will make my life easy.

Thank you in advance.

Try with these components and post your result

It would be very interesting to hear if that scheme has helped you indeed.

I want to add something buddy. I think changing the parameters of the frame and scale the two bars in the middle according to the chosen dimensions it’s not a hard task if you know simple rules. The main thing here is what type of doors are you going to install. I did have a quite similar problem recently. I needed to replace the french doors in my living room. The most important piece of this process was choosing a proper door. My best friend suggested me visiting the site https://doorsdirect2u.co.uk/product-category/french-doors/ that he uses for many years. In the end, I was rewarded for my patience. The door I found is just stunning!
