I am trying to insert an interier rectangle Brick pillars, four in total, size 360mm x 250mm in my games Room which the middle two would be the entrance to the games Room, I can't seem to find any in Chief Architects Library, does anyone know if this is at all possible?

A simple rectangle, or with a cap and base? Either way, you can do this quite easily using the polyline solid tools. Start to drag out a polyline solid, before letting go of the mouse, hit tab, enter your 360 x 250 dimensions. Then open the object, and specify its height, elevation relative to floor, layer, and material.

So many ways...


In addition to the things already mentioned above:

 

   - 3D box primitive

   - there is a "Closed Box" in the shapes library

   - the ever versatile soffit

   - custom counter top

   - floor material region

   - landing

   - and if you feel clever, you could even use a terrain feature but you will have to turn off the building hole to see it in the house.

   - and if you really like working harder than you need to, you could create one just using 4-6 3D face primitives.

   - and if you really, really like working hard, you could probably create a brick symbol and stack them up one by one (but if you want realistic mortar, it's going to be even more work).

 

Maybe we should have a contest to see who can come up with the strangest way to create this?  :)

Hmm... that could be to build a solid the size of the entire room, then use solid subtraction to remove everything but the columns.
