| Sample Column |
The Column package consists of beams
and columns. Columns can be detailed from connections saved while detailing
beams or detailed from scratch. Base plates can be recalled from details saved
while creating the anchor setting plan or entered as needed. Set the
configuration so columns are detailed the way your customer wants them, (overall
dims, tails, marks).
