AutoCAD Lesson 104 – Annotation Commands

After we watched and learn from previous lesson 103.

Let’s take a look these next Topic.

Annotations can also help CAD drafters keep track of all the important information a plain image can not express in a project. In AutoCAD, a few of the many ways to Annotate a draft are to use DIMENSIONS pallet tools and the TEXT pallet tools. Those will help you put written information on your design making it easier to vision and to elucidate.
