I'd say- make an object of equal size on x and z axis, and somewhat
tall on the y axis- a rectangle or cylinder or whatever. This object
will actually be the "hinge" of your door.
From there, attach the door as a child object to your hinge with a x
and z position (relative to the hinge) in such a way that one side of
the door sits along the y axis of the hinge. I imagine when it's all
positioned correctly it would actually look like a door sitting on a
At that point, all you have to do is modify the hinge's rotationY and
the door will open and close- as it will be a child of the hinge and
utterly dependent upon the hinge itself. Then use a tween object to
animate the hinge rotation and you've got a nice looking door moving
as a real one would.
To me this would be the easiest solution.
