Instead, use a func_door and change the lip and angle. You'll want to do the following to find the value for the lip: how high you want it - height of the elevator, then take the opposite (negative) of that. Example: Func_door is 8 units high. You want the elevator to go 800 units up. 800-8 = 792. So you would have this: key: lip, Value:-792 Then make the angle -1 (for up) and put it on the bottom of where you want it to be. I don't remember what down is, but I think it's =2 or 0. Hope this helps. you may: quote & reply,

Much easier with a func_door because you have more controls over it, can put it into a team with another part etc. ~Dark you may: quote & reply,
