Join John Helfen for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting basic dimensions, part of Learning Autodesk Inventor.
Now that we have our initial views placed, we're ready to begin annotating our design.…To start the process, we're going to select the Annotate tab in the Ribbon bar.…Within the Annotation tab, you have all the tools you are going to need to document your…design for manufacturing, things like dimensions and hole notes, center marks, and even symbols…for welding operations and surface finishes.…Now to be honest, documenting a design for manufacture takes a lot of work, a lot of…time, and a lot of practice.…The purpose of this movie is to provide a basic foundation of the general tools you…can use to get started with the process.…
We're going to start with the general Dimension tool.…I'm going to zoom in on my Detail view to begin this process.…The general Dimension tool can be found on the Annotate tab in the Dimension panel, and…it works in a very similar fashion to the dimensioning command in sketches.…There are some slight differences that I want to call out, though.…We're going to start by dimensioning the overall height of this lip.…
