Join Thom Tremblay for an in-depth discussion in this video Special annotations for sheet metal, part of Inventor: Sheet Metal Design.
…Once we have our drawing fuse in place we can start to place annotations on our…drawing use to get ready to produce our parts.…Of course, normally the basic thing you need is just simple dimensions.…Now, there's going to be a lot of different ways to apply dimensions.…And you will need to do this based on your standards.…But in this case I just want to apply a quick baseline dimension.…Just something to reference the size for creating these files.…So I'll select my baseline.…I'll select the location of some of these bend lines.…I don't have to do them in precise order, and…then I might one to select the position of some of these geometry features,…like the punch hole centers and maybe where this is located on this edge.…
And we'll just go from here and…just quickly generate a baseline dimension for our view.…If I need to I can just simply move my view around and…have the dimensions follow.…Now, some of the other notes you might want to add are things like bend notes.…So in the feature notes panel of our ribbon I'll simply select a bend and…
