I have cylinder. I need a hole in it. CSG subtract doesn't work.

Yes. :)

If you want a hole then build the walls around it with patches.

I don't get it. How can you build a cylinder with patches?

Hmm... a few example:

1. two endcaps
2. four bevels
3. as many simple patch meshes as you want

The point is that you have to edit the vertices to get a door like hole.

You get four bevels, then bend them (press V for vertex editing) so they form quarter of a circle each, then put them together to form a circle. use the same vertex editing to pull the points around to make a door. Fiddle with the various patches to get the right result...it's tricky to explain, you just have to try it.
