DOOR INSTALLATION - DOOR SWING NAMES
When installing a door it’s important that you have the terminology correct or else you could end up with an improper door installation, which could end up being a costly mistake. It’s important to take into consideration how many doors you have (one or two), the motion you’re looking to achieve, and if you have two doors: which one is active and which one is anchored. Please use the door-swing animation to see a working example of the proper naming convention for your door installation.
Use the reference below to understand the naming convention to identify how a door swing should swing when you install a door.
