17.  This video demonstrates how mirror some features from the front of the door to the back. It also describes how to use some of the Appearance Mapping options to orient the wood grain on the door. Back to the top



18.  This video demonstrates how to derive basic door dimensions considering the rough door opening and the door jam components and measurements. Back to the top



19.  This video demonstrates more on how to derive basic door dimensions considering the rough door opening and the door jam components and measurements. Back to the top



20.  This video demonstrates how to set up basic, symmetric sketch geometry for the modeling of panels in a door prior to extruded cuts, fillets and chamfers as part of our door design.

23.  This video demonstrates some mirroring options for our panel extruded cuts, fillets and chamfers first as sketch entities then using the Mirror Feature as part of our door design.  Back to the top



24.  This video demonstrates how to uses symmetric sketches to cut a hole for the insertion of a window as part of our door design.  Back to the top



25.  This video demonstrates how to create a separate window body, in the window cut, in our door and to assign appearance settings to the window body as part of our door design.   Back to the top



26.  This video demonstrates how to assign appearance settings to the window body and how to add a scene as part of our door design.  Back to the top



27.  This video demonstrates how to model a door knob as another separate body as part of our door design.  Back to the top
