arched door

Recommended Posts

I have been messing with numbers and can't get it just right. Anyone know how to get this type of door exact? door size is 72"X96"

It's like I need to get the casing to move up higher to be symmetrical all around.

Doors from the library don't automatically get an arched top, only the built in door types do.

You are basically trying to put a square peg in a round hole.

 

It looks like you are using a library door symbol for your door.  Symbol doors can be stretched to fit most square openings but there is no way currently to stretch them to fit into an arched opening.  

 

You can use a parametric door (as Eric has suggested), such as the Glass Panel type shown below, which the program will then be able to fit into the arched opening.  You will not be able to match the framed panels at the bottom though.  If you need an exact match for the door in the picture, you will probably need to build your own symbol door that matches the shape of the arched opening. 

 

Also, you might want to use a broken arch instead of a double arch for this doorway.  More information about the arch types can be found in the help section for the door dialog.
