Re: flip controls in elevation views
Yes, it is possible. It depends on how the door family is created. Usually, flip controls are not allowed in elevation views within model families, but they are allowed in plan view. Therefore, the solution is to make the door panel as a face based family, "laying on the floor", so that you can assign a flip control to it. Then, the door panel is nested into the door family, placed on a reference line that has been located in plan view, at the door opening. Now the door panel that was laying on the floor is now standing up. Once you load the door family in the project, the door displays a flip control in elevation. See illustration.
