    I think I am finally getting the hang of this revit stuff.

    Go to the level where the top of your column will be. Start the column command. Change the setting from Height to Depth and select the level to which you want the bottom of the column to attach. (I think they can be the same level for top and bottom) Finaly after placement you can edit the level offsets of the column to suit your needs.

      Okay, I did what you have mentioned above, now my problem is this:

      after placing the columns, i tried to used the attached top/base command, and the result is that he hanging column will now attach to the lower beam that I am connecting to and the height of the column is now the same height of the lower beam. when I try to attach the hanging column to the u/s of the high beam, the hanging column and the lower beam lose their connection and now don't meet.

      do yo have any ideas?

          As requested, here area a couple of pictures for the connection i am trying to get with these hanger columns.

          Connect1.png: show the hanger column connected to the higher beam and coming down to connect to the short horizontal beam that is connected to the column. this the result when i use the "attached top/base" command. I need to get the hanger column to connect to the u/s of the lower beam

          Connect2.png: shows what happens to the hanger column when i use the "attached top/base command" and attach it the top or bottom of the beam.

          Hopes this helps give you a better idea.

          This is literally my first revit project, so please bear with me if I don't understand a question in your reply.

          Sorry forgot to add the pictures

          thanks

                Attach the bottom of the col to the lower beams then add an offset to the bottom of the col??? Can this be done?

                  I have got it to work. I noticed that my base level was set to the top of the pool steel, so I think this was the problem. I didn't see a selection to be unconnected so what I have done is that I attached the hanger column to the underside of the higher beam than I have entered in the depth of the beam as the base offset to get the column to the underside of the beam.

                  I was hoping there might be another way so it would be automatic and that I don't have to do this everytime. but if this the only way to make it work than i'm okay with this.

                  here is a picture of my result. The column is highlighted in red.

                  Thanks for the help everyone

                    Seems like Adriano's post ought to be split to a new thread?
