Description

In this AutoCAD tutorial, we'll dive into techniques for working with annotative properties. By applying annotative properties to different elements, we'll give our project the flexibility to adapt to different scales with a couple of clicks. Since annotative properties work with real paper size, we can save a lot of time by using the same element in several ways within different representation scales. We'll learn how to create our own custom line types and hatch patterns to fulfill our design needs. By the end of this AutoCAD training, we'll have a complete understanding of how annotative properties and scales work in AutoCAD. Software required: AutoCAD 2103.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Francisco Castellanos. I'm an architect currently working Paris, France. Some of the latest projects I have been working on include a couple of office buildings in France and a research center near Paris. In this course, we are going to learn what are the annotative properties in AutoCAD and on which elements we can apply them. Some of the major topics we will be discussing in this course will include adding and customizing annotative properties to text and dimension styles, setting our own custom linetypes and hatch patterns, creating annotative blocks, and managing the different annotation scales for the layout of the final presentation. By the end of the training, you will be able to create your own annotative elements to work with multiple scales, optimizing your working time. I'm excited to share these tools and techniques with you, so let's get started with the first lesson.
