    Thank you for posting this idea. You are right that STAAD includes back to back angles as a single entity, this is because they are defined in some publications as standard profiles. However a column made from a number of structural objects in various configurations are not published in the same way, so handling them as a single entity like this would not be appropriate. However saying that, There is certainly scope for investigating a solution in which a fabricated column could be defined using a macro or by creating a template for structure wizard in the physical modeller. The components of the column however should still be designed individually as the codes require.
