Drawing Columns

Last modified: Aug 15, 2018

To place a column, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Wall drawing tab and pick the Column component.
  2. Move the mouse pointer to the desired location in the drawing area. Use the blue input box to change elevation, height, and thickness if necessary, and then click to place the column.
  3. A new column component is now attached to the mouse pointer for easy placement of multiple columns. If you don’t want to place more columns, press the Esc key or move the mouse pointer outside of the drawing area to release the column component.
  4. After placement, you can select the component and change its properties in the green input box. You can also stretch the height by selecting the column in the 3D view and dragging its yellow snap point.

  • To make it easier to place in a specfic location, set a reference point first.
