Cadimage Door Section Pens

When using Cadimage Doors for ArchiCAD 17 or 18  you may need to revise your pen set to include pens 26 & 30 as a white & black pen respectively. If you use a standard door leaf from the Cadimage settings, the pens in the leaf section pens settings will apply to the section view. If a custom component door (created from slabs or morphs & saved as a door leaf) is applied to the Cadimage door, the pens used will be pen 26 for the fill pen and pen 30 for the cut line pen.

Please note, these pens only affect the section view of the door, the plan view is correctly shown from the cut line/fill pen settings:Screen Shot 2015-04-27 at 8.43.27 AMThe section view is not editable for custom leafs; the original elements used to create the leaf and the door selection settings have no affect on the section view. I have changed pen 26 to green and pen 30 to red in the following image for clarity:Screen Shot 2015-04-27 at 8.43.46 AMI will not be updating our templates pen sets at this time, as I have been in contact with Cadimage regarding this issue and their development team is already looking into it. I will be assessing all projects with custom door leafs on a case by case basis until a long term solution is come to.
