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.
There are two ways to add notes to your drawings in Autodesk® Revit® Architecture software. Both are located on the Annotate tab and highlighted in Figure 18.2. One of these methods is the Text command (shown on the left), and the other is the Keynote command (shown on the right).
The text object consists of a resizable field into which you can enter text with optional features, including leaders, bullets, or numbers. Text can be used for annotations, sheet ...
