I am not know how to make a door family. I need to design a door with a design in the middle. I was hoping that someone could design it for me. If someone could I would really appreciate it. Here is the door. Oh just found out that I have to make a matching window with the same design

I would start by first cutting an oval hole in the door using VOID EXTRUDE then and EXTRUSION along an oval shaped path which will define your frame. Then a thin oval EXTRUSION for your glazing Then 4 EXTRUSIONS for the 4 mullions. Then 3D LINEWORK lines for the design in the middle Add oval trim EXTRUDE cc

Yah...I would create it exactly like Rubicks described....if you're really new to this, which it seems like you are, the one thing you might not understand from the way Rubicks explained it is to create the extrustions on the correct working planes. You can create extrustions based on any plane in the project, either reference planes drawen in, or planes of faces from previously created soilds. It takes a different mindset to work in 3D then it does in 2D CAD, and it takes some people awhile to grasp the concepts, but whatever you do don't let someone else create it for you, do it yourself, or else you'll never learn.

Select the lines and change the reference planes...you might have to pick each one seperately not selecting them all, or you can just cut and paste them to the right plane
