Awning

I would use Sketchup to make the awning and then create a symbol using the Sketchup model. But if you don't use Sketchup I would use a 3D Polygon. In a new drawing select Draw--> Solid--> Polygon 3D and draw a cross section of the awning. Give it a height equal the the width you want the finished awning. Create a 3D view and export to a 3D format such as DWG. Use the Symbol Wizard to create the awning from the exported 3D model. In the Symbol Wizard you can rotate the awning to the proper orientation.
