This is an example of the graphic representation of a Column in a drawing.
Vertical and horizontal dimensions are placed on all columns. The columns are used as anchors to other dimension objects, but they are also dimensioned independently. The anchored dimensions are included in the chains that include braces, beams, and equipment object dimensions. For an example of column dimensions anchored with other dimensions, see the example below.
There are two types of independent dimensions for the columns. First, the columns are dimensioned to the surrounding columns, giving you a distance between each adjacent column. Second, the overall distance between the chain of column dimensions is dimensioned. For an example of the two independent dimension types, see the example below.
