Saloon Doors
« on: December 18, 2006, 10:44:11 AM »
I am trying to create saloon style doors for a project I am working on and can not figure out how to get the doors to look correct.  I have gotten the double swing doors, but can not get the profile to look correct.  If some one can please help that would be great.  I have surched around and have not been able to find anything.  Thanks

I remember a tutorial several years ago about applying a polyline profile to an object to force it to a desired shape (I actually have a shelf and rod using that technique). Let me see if I can find it ...

Draw the doors as a profile. Draw a 3d block for the frame or hinges or whatever. Create the door style. Use the profile when defining the door type and insert the frame block under display properties. HTH.

Create one side of the saloon doors in 3D.  Then block it.  Then in the door style, turn off the door panel under display properties.  Add the block thru custom block (going off memory, don't have ADT anymore).  Then add the block again, modifying the properties to mirror it.

No problem. I'm having a relearning myself. Things have changed way too much since the early release that came out with 2002 or 4. I can't remember.
