Garage door panels

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to scale garage doors so if you have a 16' section it visually shows two 8' garage door sections?

Do you have a picture Johnny?  Is this something that you just need to fake the eye with some moldings?

Sorry, I probably didn't explain correctly.  Attached is a pic of how Chief handles a 8' garage door of a certain style, but then a 16' door.  All Chief does is stretch the one 8' door to make a 16' door.  Id like Chief to place two (2) 8' "panels" of that design (or any design) garage door to makeup the 16' door.

 

I was hoping there was a way to do this in the Dbx since this comes up often, but I cant see it.

I would be quite interested if someone comes up with a brilliant way to do that but I would think you would need to create a new symbol from two of the existing ones.
