Toolbar and Menu Item

Please note that the toolbar and menu have changed for the Door Maker Pro. There is now an option to add your own profiles.

There is a toolbar for my plugins called "GKWare Door Maker". There is a submenu under the Plugins menu called "GKWare Cabinet Door" and menu option under that called Door Maker. You may consider adding a hot key to the menu item. I have added 'D' as the hot key.

Door Maker input box

Here is the main input box used to configure the door(s) that you want to create. This example is in English. See documentation on language localization.


Face Frame


There are 12 styles: plain, shaker, square, arch, cathedral, double arch and double cathedral and 5 multi panel doors. The multi panel doors are square square, arch square, cathedral square, three panel square and mitered. Door Maker also adds handles and doors open and close. Door Maker "Gold" supports mullions, passage doors with Door Jambs, bifolds with half jambs and a number of other features.


There are 15 wood grain textures to choose from. You can add your own textures. There is an Images folder that contains textures as well as the gkwaredoormaker/texture.txt file. Add both a horizontal and a vertical texture in jpg format using the proper naming conventions. For instance maplever.jpg and place the single entry "maple,36" in the textures.txt file. You can also re arrange the order of the textures in the textures.txt file. I put "white,36" at the top of the file because I wanted it to appear first in the drop down list.


There is a door maker manual in the gkware_doormaker/DoorMaker.pdf
