Inserting a garage door
Read 413 times

I am fairly new to TurboCad and am looking for an overhead garage door to use in my model. I see the single and double entry doors but none others. I have the 2017 Deluxe version. Is this all there is to this or are there other ways to accomplish these doors? Thank you for any information you may offer.

Two iss all that is available in Deluxe. Platinum has 20 different Door Types, of which one is an Overhead type.

You can create a garage door from 3D objects and 2D objects (a Plan view). Format each as a separate Block object, then use the Opening tools to insert your door/Blocks. When viewed in Plan view, you'll see your 2D representation. The other views (Isometric, etc) will display your 3D garage door.

Thank you John R. That was my main question. I didn't know if I was missing it or if there were only the two. I'll try your suggestion and build the blocks.
Thank you Sir.
