Columns and wall can be in different layers with different intersection groups, so they don´t interact with each other:

Hi @Zdenko,

Set the column’s material to be different from wall’s material then bring columns to front.

both are "wood structural". do i need to then create another "wood structural" in building materials?

@Zdenko,

I’m sorry for late response but thanks to @Jp1138, he helped me to remember something I forgot by time.

Maybe this old post will help explain columns and walls.
