Why shape intelligent is required for RCC columns and beams

In Plant3d space there is no feature available for modelling beams and columns.

 

Presently we are modelling the beams and columns using normal autocad command Extrude.

 

If modifications required we have to delete and do it again.

 

Other issue:

 

We learned how to extract support drawings from Plant3d, however, we find diffultly to annote the beam reference for the support as there is no intelligent for columns and beams, hence we have keep the reference manually.

 

I feel, it will not be a big task for Autodesk to provide the shape intelligent for beams, columns in Plant3d space in the upcoming Plant 2014 release, as this is an imperative feature required.

There is a structural modelling section inside Plant. Its the third tab at the top of the Ribbon. There are supplied structural members, and another structural database available on Plant Exchange.

My question is relate to civil RCC - beams and columns, not structural beams and columns. There is no option give for civil except footing.
