Don't use func_doors.


Your supposed to use func_trains, but they're pretty difficult to understand. Just stick to using ladders and stairs and gain some hammer expierence before moving on.

ok i found my answer


You need to set the Lip to the correct number to get it to move where you want.

If the Lip is 10 then the door will move until it intersects with its old position by 10 units.

If you set Lip to zero, the door will move exactly one of itself.

If you Lip to 600 then the door will move until there are 600 units between itself and its old position.

For an elevator, you might want to use a func_train. It has more options than func_door but is harder to use.

A func_door should work fine for a simple elevator, just like you described.

With a func_train, you need to create a path_corner at each stop point. The train can move from one path corner to another. It will stop at a path_corner such that it's center is aligned with the path_corner's center.

Remember you can define the center of any brush-entity using an origin brush.
