Learn how to convert a CAD shape into a molding polyline or into a 3D solid shape.
Create a column by stacking components, blocking them together and adding them to the library. Or you can convert them into a symbol.
There are many tools that can create columns. This video discusses using posts, railings, polyline solids and library objects for this purpose.
There are several methods for creating decorative beams, including the framing tools, soffits and 3D molding polylines.
Add labels to any type of framing item in your plan.
Draw posts and beams manually, set their material and size properties and then copy them on any desired module.
Create custom truss symbols using roof beams or polyline solids.
You can designate walls and beams as bearing to cut the joists that pass over them, and you can use bearing walls to automatically generate supporting foundation walls below them.
