Arched raised panel doors

Postby grc » Mon Jan 11, 2010 12:39 am

Does anyone know of a model of an arched raised panel door? I looked on 3D Wearhouse and did a number of searches trying to find one. I spent the afternoon trying to draw one. I'm having trouble with the arch, incorperating the router profile in the arch. If no one know of any models, I could use some direction drawing one.

What difficulty are you having exactly? A model of an arched door isn't easily stretched because of the arch so it's difficult to modify an existing model. Drawing the cope and stick profile is relatively simple if you are familiar with the process of using the follow me tool, combining and intersecting entities.

The drawing of the cope and stick profiles are easy, like you said. The arch is where the problem is. Thanks for the drawing of the door. I'm looking to see if I can modify it to fit any door opening. Can you give me any info on the best way to draw the arch with the profile?

Getting the profile to follow the arch seems to be what you are asking about.
If so...Draw the rail piece as you would a straight one, make the arch then draw the profile on the end of the rail. Select the path and use the follow me tool.

Once that portion of the rail is complete to satisfaction, then use intersect etc to form the other profiles on the ends of the rail. The followme tool will only work correctly if it's origination point begins on a perpendicular direction or surface.

If you dont know...it helps to use the tape measure to resize the model to a large scale (x100) while performing the intersect/followme functions then return the model to the proper size.
