Garage Overhead Door Best Practice

Greetings,

I am struggling with finding a good method for entering Overhead Garage Doors.   I have a garage foundation that will be 2 blocks above the slab.  I want to have a 2x6 run down to the slab inside of the framed opening to facilitate attachment of the OHD trim moulding.  What would be good settings for the "Add for Concrete Cutout"  … and "Has Jamb"   settings?  And Should the "Inside Trim" be the 2x6 frame for railing attachment?  

 

Thanks,

TP

      Hi,
      I was wondering if I can somehow setup spaces between door of cabinets to make a significant line between them.
       
      As you can see on the pictures, one (with that chairs) is what Chief does and spaces just disappear in render because they're too small, second one is image created via SketchUp, but I prefer Chief for modeling. 
       
      Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

      Hi there,
       
      I am using Chief Architect X9
       
      I can't seem to find a sidelite that is "half lite" only 3/4 lites or full lites.
      I'm wondering if theirs a way to customize an object to make the glass smaller?
      I have attached an image - this is the closest I could find. I tried looking on the 3D warehouse but had no luck.
      (Using the Simpson Door Company - Arlington Sidelight)
       
      Also - does anyone know if on the elevation view you can get rid of the door operation indicators only on the sidelites?
       
      thanks in advanced.

      Is there any way to create a small gap or offset between the door and casing? Like a real door would have, to leave just a tiny bit of room for the hinges. Specifically for open interior doors. I've made a door hinge symbol I'd like to use, and I assume I'd have to make a different one for various swing angles, but I'm not seeing any obvious way to create that small gap. By default, Chief's doors just meet the casing at the corner completely, leaving no room. I could force the hinges in there, but they would clip through the door and casing and look less realistic. 
       
      I'd also like to add a strike plate to the casing and latch to the door, but short of placing the symbols myself that doesn't seem very plausible right now. Maybe a suggestion for a future version of Chief.

      Look very close and tell me if you can find the hidden bi-fold door. I'll post where its at in a few days. :-)
