What do you all find is the best method for creating 2'-0" x 2'-0" (or
any other size) masonry piers? Short wall segments with endcaps? Would
appreciate any ideas.
Thanks

James,

If the piers are freestanding I would use a mass element. If they are
like pilasters, up against a wall, you could use either a mass element
attached as an additive interference condition, or use a wall modifier.

If the pier is attached to a wall, you may also use a wall drawn
perpendicular to the main wall. This method will allow you to create a
vertically straight pier and also a flying buttress type of pier. To
accomplish the flying buttress pier, simply adjust the roof/floor line in
the wall properties dialogue box. Choose the Edit vertex... option. Works
great. One caveat with the short perpendicular wall method is you will need
to adjust the cleanup radius to make it work properly. Hope this helps.

I haven't tried it but I would try using the add column and then hatch in
elevation views.
