    Kilik: What you are drawing is a concrete column that sits atop of block of concrete called a footing. The concrete column (and there are many of them) supports a concrete slab atop which stands a vertical steel column. The steel column has a baseplate welded to the bottom and this is anchored into the slab.

    Refer to this lengthy thread for further information re: structural project. I believe what you are trying to draw is depicted in one of the images included in the thread.

    Yes, Car5858 took the Penn-Foster CAD course.

    There are a number of Penn-Foster projects discussed here at CADTutor. A simple search of the words "Penn Foster" will bring up all the threads that were started by people like yourself seeking help with their questions.

    Yes I did and yes the course is acceptable for an entry level position. This course introduces you to different aspects of the drafting world. You will find that by concentrating on what you like will help you after you finish this course. Most of all is practice, if you don't you will forget and be left in the dust by others. Save all the drawings that you do and use them as part of your profile.

    When you reach the day that you submit your last drawing, it is a great boost to your ego

    Hello:I am working on Penn Foster's Structural Drafting Project - Plate 2. I have reread the project materials a number of times for a clue to the dimensions of the outside wall. I Need to know this so that I can place the center of the anchor bold 8" from the outside of the wall. (This is on page 12 of the project booklet - which says - The plates are bolted to the concrete slav with 2 anchor bolts that are 1-1/2" in diameter and 18" long. The bolts project out ot the concrete slab 3-1/2". The bottom 4" segment of the bolt is bent horizontal, pointing toward the center of the building. The center of the bolt is 8" from the outside wall. ) I understand what they want me to do, but I cannot seem to figure out where to place the center of the bolt.
    Thanks to anyone who can direct me to that information.

    Think about what elevation you are working on. The outside of the building will be on your left or right. The outside edge is the start of the exterior siding.
    Measure from the outside edge of the beam toward the center of the building. The outside bolt will be located 8" from the inside edge of the column flange (not shown in this drawing). Do not add the 8" dim to your drawing, I put it in to show you where to measure from.
    The confusion that your having is normal for this set of instructions, I see that it still has not been corrected. As this example shows:

    No the outside edge will be at the outside edge of the colunm flange. Remember that in this elevation you are looking at the Flange of the column, not the web. So this requires that the bolts be drawn on the hidden layer.
