Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Why use annotation?, part of AutoCAD: Effective Annotating.
- [Instructor] So why do we use annotation in…our AutoCAD drawings?…Well as I said in the previous video…we need it to communicate…our design intent, that's the main reason,…but what other reasons are there to…use annotation in your AutoCAD drawings?…Well we're still in the same drawing…the 01_introtoannotation.dwg file…and you'll notice I'm back in the model tab…bottom left there of the drawing area.…
So in the model tab you do all your design work…where it's normally one to one full size.…Now this particular drawing is in metric millimeters.…So you can see there on the left…we have 300 metric millimeters.…We have 150 and 100 at the top.…So why do we use that annotation?…Well the whole idea is we're communicating…those values, those distances, those dimensions…to the person that might manufacture…this particular object.…
Now the thing is with AutoCAD…it's such an accurate design tool…that you can snap to all of the corners…of this particular object…utilizing your objects snaps.…Now we're coming to that later in the course as well,…
