Annotations are an important part of every drawing. The easier way to achieve the Best Practice for technical Drawing and CAD described earlier using BIM and AutoCAD is to use annotative elements (annotative text, annotative dimensions, annotative leaders, etc.) Those are annotative by default in BIM software. However, you still need to know how you want them to look. The links below address each annotation element specifically for setting annotative element on AutoCAD. You can also the AutoCAD values to set up your BIM as well, which more or less need the same parameters. 

Set-up parameters for Annotation

  1. Text Sizes and Font
  2. Dimensions
  3. Hatch
