Check out this tutorial ... http://softplan.com/...ening-tutorial/ ... it's for a garage door, but applying the same principle should get you where you want to be.

 

Also check out some of the manufacturers doors too, as there are already some arched head doors in the library that may match what you require.

I thought you meant that exact door....

 

Anyway, i got it....  Copied an elevation opening, exploded it, modified it and then recreated a L and R.

Hey Allen

Thanks

Nice. Looks great.   I was just looking for that door.  I will need to create one.  I was short on time and didnt need it for 3D so I had to explode and do it in 2D

DOOR GLAZING: This is a section from the thread referred to in post #2

 

Openings can be added with DETAIL>OPENING SHAPES>DOOR GLAZING
It is probably best if you want grilles to physically draw them if you have multiple windows that require them. The grille function does work on custom designs, but is a little hit and miss as to whether it works as you think it should.
 
This is an important step .... If you used the door glazing above, it will show as glass - otherwise any other shape that has glass, will need the glass added separately. If you want to include glass, it must be drawn in a dotted line. Personally I find it best to draw a dotted polygon (normally in a different colour). I position it where it's needed, and then right click inside the polygon, choose POLYGON and explode it. That's not the only way, but it works for me, so that's what I use - If you don't explode the polygon, it wont show as glass.

for the glass,

after you've put in the appropriate lines/arcs,

i OFFSET the most inner line/arc 1/4" inward,

edit the arcs to "dashed" (if still solid)

fillet the corners of those new lines/arcs.

 

feel free to add or correct my directions.
