From time to time we get the question, how to draw a lift with 2 or 3 cabin doors in DigiPara Liftdesigner. The operation is easy to manage, if you know how to.

Step 1: You need to change the standard sling car frame to a “Rucksack” car frame type, to have corner doors available in the Floor Level List.

No corner doors available:

Step 2: Do the following. Double click on a car frame in the drawing to open up the component navigator.

Step 3: After changing the car frame, change the rail bracket of the counterweight as well against a combination bracket type.

Step 4: Switch the wall side of the car frame via the car frame properties two times to update the rail brackets

Now select the corner door in the Floor Level List dialog:

That’s it. Any feedback is, as always, appreciated.
