Chapter 18Annotating Your Design

No set of documents is complete without the annotations to describe the drawings. Even when you are using a digital, parametric model, you still need to provide annotated documents. It is necessary to add dimensions, tags, text, and notes to the drawings to properly communicate with owners, contractors, and the rest of the design team.

In this chapter, you’ll learn to:

  • Annotate with text and keynotes
  • Use tags
  • Add dimensions
  • Set project and shared parameters

Annotating with Text and Keynotes

Notes are a critical part of communicating design and construction intent to owners and builders. No drawing set is complete without descriptions of materials and the work like the ones you can see in Figure 18.1.
