How can you make 45 degree corners for top of garage doors?

You can do it making a new Door Family :

  1. New Family > New Family- Select Template Family > Door >Open
  2. in Elevation View -Exterior > using TAB , select the Opening Cut > Edit Sketch > chamfer the corner as in Image 1 - you can make this parametric so to to can control the angle and length of chamfering ( I recomend this) - Now the opening is as you want
  3. Create a sweep for door frame and an extrusion for the door leaf..
  4. Load the door into project --Image 02 (a roughexample )

These "clipped" corner garage doors openings are quite popular.  Has anyone ever modeled these in their projects?

Thanks - I will try that sometime.

For now I may stick with editing the wall profile :smileyhappy:
