Learn how to use AutoCAD, the flagship CAD platform from Autodesk, to effectively annotate your drawings.
- [Shaun] Welcome to this course in annotating effectively in AutoCad. Now you may wonder what annotation in AutoCAD actually is. Well, it's this kind of stuff here on the 00_Introduction drawing. See these dimensions here? Well, they're dimensions that are annotating the drawing for you. They're giving you the dimensions, the physical sizes of the objects in your AutoCAD drawings. You can see the annotation there. Now that's not just the only type of annotation we're going to cover in the course.
We're going to look at dimensioning. We're going to look at text. We're going to look at center lines. We're going to look at leaders and multi-leaders, tables, and marking up your drawings as well. Things like revision clouds and wipeouts. All of this is annotation, it is communicating your design intent in your AutoCADdrawings. So let's get going now and let's look at annotating effectively in AutoCAD>
