Dynamic Sliding Door Following Wrong Axis

Hi guys,
My dynamic sliding door is sliding along the red X axis instead of sliding along the roughly 45 degree angle of my door. The door component axis is set along the door angle but on interaction it opens sideways along the models X axis.

I expect I’m missing something obvious that tells the door to open along a custom axis but after much googling and youtubing I’ve not worked it out. I’ve included the model for ref (sketchup2020), any help making it slide in the right direction would be greatly appreciated :sweat_smile:

If you put the door component inside the track component, it will slide in the direction of its parent’s x-axis:

You’ll have to adjust the values to make it start and stop at the right place.
