Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding concrete piers and pilasters, part of Creating Concrete Buildings with Revit Structure.
…One of the best things about Revit is…the fact that materials kind of know one another.…One of the biggest time savers in using this…application is recognized when walls and piers come together.…By just plopping in a pier, we save ourselves the offset…command, the trim command, and the hedge command all in one shot.…So, let's start adding some support to our columns.…Let's jump down to structural plan level one.…To add a pier and a pilaster, what we…actually are going to do is add a concrete column.…
So, on the structure tab, click the column button.…Under properties, click the drop down.…Let's grab concrete > rectangular column > 24 by 30.…Let's click on edit type.…Now let's duplicate.…So the new name, let's call it 32 by 32, and hit OK.…For both the B and the H dimensions type in 32 inches, and then 32 inches.…Let's click OK.…For the height, let's change that back to depth.…
The depth wants to be top of footing.…Now, let's scroll through, and start selecting our grid intersections.…Notice that Revit is going to do all the dirty work for us.…
