There are quite a few methods for this type of thing but the 2 that stand out to me the most...


1.  Just use a double callout...



2.  Use an elevation camera...



The latter is probably my personal favorite because you can place the grid line once and it will display on ALL floors and it can be selected on any floor as well.  Biggest downside to the camera method though is that it comes with no usable snaps.

      Building on the videos Eric (Solver) made recently...I did this video to show how you can construct a tapered paneled column in plan view, using p-solids and a molding polyline. It's a fast method...and the best part is you don't have to use a 3D molding polyline.
      Check it out....

      Is there anything I can do to either reduce or eliminate the lines the column moldings are producing in vector view?  I did convert the curve to a polyline...and divided the circle into very small parts...but it doesn't seem to help.  
      Any ideas would by great.  Thanks.

      There are a lot of ways to make a column like this using the tools Chief gives us...this is a method I use.  Hope it helps...

      I am working on a project that requires the plan view of each floor to have a reference grid that intersects at each column.   Is there a easy way to do this where each grid has an alpha callout at the top of the layout view and numeric callout along one or both sides.
