As we all know, there are limited garage doors in Chief... A lot of them! Just not what we need. I plan on making more of the standard doors also. These are some of the common doors we use here in West Michigan from Clopay or similar.

I am including my drawing where I made the doors if you want to make your own and/or expand on the drawing. I am also including my Library of these garage doors.


Video about the garage doors...

Let me know what you think. Are these helpful?

Here is another garage door of what I would call a more traditional or standard door you purchase at your local lumberyard. Some without glass that you assemble as a garage door type and enter the number of panels, and others with glass on the top row which are fully assembled.


With this drawing file you could now make a 12' wide by 12' high storage building overhead door with a row of windows in one of the rows. See the video below for the steps.



A video on how I turn the a stack of door panels into a symbol, add it into the wall, and then save it as a garage door library item...

      I wanted to add this here for anyone wanting to make beams and have the grain run with the beam on all side - even for Arcs

      I found another post where users were trying to find better ways to generate more realistic grass, and further conversation brought me to Twinmotion to help me render elevations quickly.
      Here is a link to what I learned and shared on setting up an environment with grade and trees that is ready to import your CA model...

      Here is the link to both the and the Grade folder... (will need to be unzipped - see detail in above post for more details)
      UPDATE: Updated background files and details at the end of this thread.

      See steps in posts below to set up.
      FYI, I have been overwriting the background as I have improved it - it now has grass added from Twinmotion.

      I did just send this to support, but wanted to know if anyone else was running into this - perhaps unwittingly...

      I ran into this once before, where I open my CA and there are no toolbars on the top and side.
      I found that my saved configuration was missing so I added it back in and set it default [ Switch To ]
      Nothing happens. 
      I even reset my toolbars and still nothing.
      Any idea how to get my toolbars back?
      Thank you,

      How can I globally turn off the Show Schedule Callout? As I insert Library objects I can open the object and turn if off, but if my object is a block I need to explode the block and then select the object with the call out on. 
      Thank you,
