Store common notes as blocks

A library of drawing notes for your drawings:

  • Helps save time

 

  • Avoid confusion with groups outside of engineering

 

  • Makes training easier for new hires

 

  • Make things easier if in the future you need to make changes to your notes through automation.

I like turning my common annotations (notes) into blocks, then saving the blocks into my design library.

Now when I am ready to add common notes to my drawings, I can drag and drop my notes from the SOLIDWORKS task pane to where I want within the drawing.

If you store these blocks in a common location where everyone has read access, everyone can take advantage of the standards you created.
