How do I make a door

i need help it is my first day doing this and i can’t make a door

What kind of a door?

Maybe before you worry about making a door, you could go through the Fundamentals at

a door in general

Start with a rectangle on the ground and extrude it upward with Push/Pull.

I think there is a bit to this that we will need help with… are you looking to put a doorway opening in a wall? Hoping to draw a door slab (as Dave showed)? Are you wanting to show trim, knob, hinges? Should it open and close? Is it being placed in a single face or a wall with a volume?

Lots of variable in “just a door” and we would love to help you with any and all of them… If you help us find out what it is you need!


a doorway in a wall

and on hinges

I’ll be happy to show you how to make a door in a wall with hinges when you give full details about the door and the wall. In the meantime, go to and learn the fundamentals of using SketchUp.

Hinges too? You’ve missed out on the handle. Maybe the letter flap too.

ok sorry im new

Don’t despair…
Some of them are joshing with you !
BUT if you want help make sure you understand the basics of using SketchUp, and explain what you are trying to do…
‘Making a door’ might be clear to you but to the rest of us we’ll have to guess…
A few pointers…
Have you made a wall ?
Do you want to form a door opening in it ?
Is this a ‘structural’ opening - i.e. a hole, or does it include a frame around the top & bottom and then a door ‘leaf’ ?
What are the dimensions of the door opening, frame and leaf ?
Is the door leaf detailed beyond being ‘hinged’ on one side ?
Do you want ‘ironmongery’ etc etc…

Who knew that a ‘door’ could be so complicated ??

Question: when is a door not a door?

Answer: when it’s ajar! :slight_smile:

Reminds me of when I gave a Vietnamese friend a recipe. One of the steps was to leave the oven door ajar. She asked “why do I need to put a jar in the oven?”.
