Join Thom Tremblay for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a bend table to a drawing, part of Inventor: Sheet Metal Design.
…We can also add tables to our drawing.…If we're going to be using automated production equipment,…these tables will make it easier to get data into that equipment.…To add a table to a drawing, I'll switch to my Annotate tab and…go to the Table panel.…First, let's create a hole table.…I'll use the pull-down to select that I want to create a hole table based on…the view.…I'll select the drawing view of the flat panel and then place my datum for…this hole table.…Let's just place where the table is represented.…You can stretch it to fill this gap, make it look a little better, and…let's do a little free formatting for this table.…
For example, we see that there are a number of holes of the same diameter.…So, let's try and make this table a little more easy to understand.…I'll double-click on the table and…I can do things like combining the notes of a hole.…I can then modify the annotation, and as I did in an earlier exercise,…clean up the way these hole notes are represented.…A few clicks and we have a much better looking table.…
