Garage Door Single vs Double wide

Recommended Posts

In the catalog, I found a Garage door I want to use but it doesn't work on the double-wide garage door.

How does one deal with this?

Do you want visually two single doors placed side by side forming the wider door?

That's correct.

The big door does not look good stretched.

The front looks better if you see 3 layouts one is actually one door.

I usually make a new symbol from two doors. 

 

Some of the manufacturer catalogs have both single and double doors.

Thanks Eric,

Michael was kind enough to show me how to do just that.

I wrote the instructions down as not to forget:

Make a Double Garage Door Procedure
If you need a double wide for the wider garage door:
open a new blank PLAN
draw a wall & insert the door you want
Remove the casings & threshold
In A 3D overview Use the Delete Surface Tool to remove all the wall layers
Nothing but the door showing use Tools/Symbols/convert to symbol  then Add to the library using default settings
Back to plan, delete the wall, then insert the new symbol from the library
copy & paste to get 2 of them. move side by side.
Go to 3D overview and Convert to a symbol, this time save as DOOR & rename
Delete the first single door symbol from the library
You are good to go.

Is there any reason why you can't just mull two doors together?

Just tried it.

Could not get rid of the 1" divider in plan view nor the dashed line showing the plan view door opening area.

When mulled the door look good in elevation views.

Thanks for Posting that....

 

you could also export the Door from the Library and Add it to your Post for Others perhaps....

Good suggestion Mick

I started messing about with this procedure after encouragement from Michael.

Thanks always happy to have another Symbol :) , I have been messing with the Delete Surface Tool since Michael Posted the Tip over in the Tips Forum , it was how I cleaned up the really old NanaWall Library by DMDz and made a few extra Panels ( in the Symbols Forum already)
